The original is a handmade, 10”x8” collage from a new series that started with a big stack of vintage postcards. There was a good deal of beaches, lakes, motel pools and even a few cruise ships. As expected, that Kodachrome blue dominated each collage. But as is often the case with my mixed media work, a few unexpected things happen. The play of all the shades of blue creates some movement, almost like shimmering water when you look at the art from across the room. It’s a magical art experience that you just can’t replicate on a screen – you have to see the art in person. And then, all those blue circles started reminding me of the view from a window seat when landing at an airport. Especially in places where very other backyard seems to be dotted with a swimming pool’s blue circle.
