It took me a long while to do this spread. I have worked on it off and on for months. The spread is in a passport journal from Geronimo who is a collage artist in Vienna, Austria. I had made some papers using images that I had created in iColorama. The journal sat. I then added the black circle and line napkin ephemera and the journal sat. I found the woman’s body, the orange blouse and cut it out. The journal sat waiting. Then I found the woman’s head which I altered in a couple of ways. The head was attached and I was getting closer. The bee had been waiting for the “right” new “home”. I was looking through a magazine and found the window and I had my AHA moment. Put the bee behind the window. Name the woman Clarita. That started the narrative about giant bees. There you have it! :-)
Your dexterity is amazing! I love the colors and the whole story! Thanks, John.
This is a fantastic one and deserves to be a book cover or something. Such a rich storyline. You may have to write a novel for it... xcr
I lways appreciate your description of the process.
Clarita is just the best.
Clarita appears to have been through a lot, lately, and the Giant Bees are apparently the very last straw!!!
Haha funny- and clever. Love her “wallpaper’’!
