Paper only! An Art Challenge at Sitka

It’s great fun to create in ways that come easiest, not always comfortable to be challenged to do things differently. Every year my friend Linda and I take a class at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology on the Oregon coast. This year we took a collage class with Margot Voorhies Thompson.
My normal way of approaching a collage piece is to add paint and paper in layer after layer. Margot encouraged us to work in simple compositions, using fewer materials. These pieces are the result of working simply, with paper only. I met the challenge!
