So, you know how normal people can just watch TV? Not me. I need to be doing something while I sit down to watch a specific show. So, tonight, I grabbed an old Kitten Calendar, some prints of vintage photos I have, and "gentleman's" magazines.
I particularly enjoy showing how absurd these lady pictures are, but when I found the wolf with the eyepatch... JACKPOT.
Anyways, expect to see these femme fatales in future collages. They are just so ridiculous and sorta creepy, too.

Collage made with cut outs from mostly magazines, but I also used cut outs from maps, a 70's nature book (tiger and Russian buildings), unsolicited advertising (bottom left yellow bird), the tag on a tea bag, a wedding invitation (brown flower), and a recent birthday card (top left bird), and 2 canceled US postage stamps. I also used paint, glue, and Sharpies.

I'm home sick again today, but at least I have enough energy to paint.
So, I listened to an audiobook called: 1861 by Adam Goodheart,
and I tried to salvage my another one of my Lincoln pieces.
I made the rather large mistake of starting this large painting without having any idea of where I wanted it to go. I have already sanded this down and put a few thin layers of gray on top a failing painting underneath. I'm not totally sure where its going. I just know it needs to go somewhere.
I feel like I spent an awful long time putting in a ton of detail work, and I feel like it barely makes a difference. Oh well. At least its still a mystery and something to discover.

So, I am taking a few painting classes at Radford Universtity. I feel that the deeper into these class I go- the more I have no idea what I am doing.
Here are 2 works in progress for class- and they are awful.

While I was finding just the perfect (purr-fect?) cat face for the collage I just finished I couldnt help but start a few more. The pieces below are in progress and probably a ways from finishing.

Occasionally I get set on a theme. Seems like today the theme is Vermont.
I am lucky enough to have a life partner from Vermont. So, I gets to spend lots and lots of time in that frozen place. Despite all my best efforts, Vermont has really grown on me, despite its cold weather.
