I had a relaxing day in town yesterday with my friend Isabel and we went to see Peter Madden's excellent exhibition of collages at Ivan Anthony Gallery on K Road. The show inspired me to play around with paper today, so I made a few simple collages to turn into cards.
A lady mysteriously emerges from a pot of geraniums
A magic doorway appears in a boat and a maid ushers a gentleman out
The girl had everything her heart desired
except for a little brother and sister
The village was so peaceful
until the stilt-walkers arrived!
The woman had a rather prickly personality
Still life with lady and mirror
Still life with punt
It was hard to get the girl to smile
You'd think this would have worked, but alas, it did not.
