Collages from Shower Curtains, Wood Sheds, o my

some recent work here, mainly been making collage made from a single photograph…sure to draw figures and scenes as well so as not to get rusty.

empress jingu
Empress Jingū (onna bugeisha) 7.29.16 Collage made from a single photograph of a shower curtain taken in Berea, KY. Made on Paint, enhanced with Fotor.  Jingū (c. 169-269 AD) led a Japanese conquest of Korea without blood-shed. She was an original onna bugeisha, female warriors which predated samurai. In 1881, Empress Jingū became the first woman to be featured on a Japanese banknote.

this is the photograph of a shower curtain in an artist’s studio in Burton, KY from which i made Empress Jingu:

silk tree collage
Silk Tree Shakti 6.29.16 Collage made from a single photograph of a mimosa tree in Pleasureville, KY farmland, made on Paint. Here Shiva is depicted holding what grows in Pleasureville: corn, wheat, tobacco and soybeans. Shakti represents female embodiment and fertility which enables all male potential to manifest.

both Silk Tree Shakti and Arms Up Don’t Shoot are made from this photograph of a silk tree, otherwise known as mimosa, which is a non-native flowering tree.

i went to Catholic school for 15 years. in that span of time three Catholic sisters suggested i was called by God. this intrigued me, as no other girls i studied with has been told this by a sister. however, i have yet to join a convent.
