Were she here, she would say “Why do you take away such marvelous color?” And I would say, “Sometimes, for me, the color is too much.” “Ahh….” she would say. “Well, I don’t like it.” Then she would chuckle when I would post it anyway.

This is the second in what I think is likely to be a series of digital photographs (digitally edited) of handmade mixed-media collages I make using a variety of materials I’ve been collecting, such as old postcards, vintage papers and stamps, photographs and drawings (including my own). I’m also playing around with paints, crayons, and pencils. Collage is a whole new medium for me, so I am just getting my feet wet. The resulting photograph ends up barely resembling (if at all) the actual collage, but does retain certain elements of it. Impaired cognition is the subject inspiring and linking the posts in the series. The CC in the title refers to “cognitive collage”–just a tag I picked when I needed a file title to sort my images into.
