2 days to go … whoohooo

I travel to Bali on saturday for my daughter’s wedding … so exciting …  7 days of heat and photography, catching up with family and friends and whatever adventures await.

In 2007 when i travelled to Switzerland to spend time with my daughter and my future son-in-law I did a foundart series where i created small original collages and lost them along the way … see the series here >>>

For this trip the collages are larger, postcard size and i plan to create another foundart series2.  Keep a watch on this space. <<< for the Bali foundart series. As Always, do let me know what you think .

it is an amalgamation of two photos taken of the top half of the building and the bottom with scooter and bike and then pulled together in photoshop (NOT stitched) …

i am enjoying immensely the feedback from these monthly showings of photos … and its always gratifying to be well-placed …

this one took first place in the EDI for August – (enhanced digital image).


i have three separate photographic elements here (clouds, poppies, statue) from photos taken in my garden in Tasmania, on a walk and a small town in Umbria.

my foundart series – losing art on my travels

In 2007 I was planning to travel to Switzerland to spend time with daughter and I was going to be away for 5 weeks. Although I was planning on doing little drawings, taking lots of photos and visiting galleries I knew ‘doing art’ was out of the question but I still wanted to ‘do’ something art wise.

So I hit on the idea of a ‘foundart series’ but with me ‘losing ‘the art and the found part being someone else’s.

I spent 2 months working across older collages, reworking and layering what turned out to be ‘vessels’ (vases and bowl shapes).  I then cut the larger collages up creating small business card size artworks and worked on each one to create individual little gems
see the whole article here with pictures of progress and final pieces.
