All the Doors of the World Are Opening For Me
This is one of the first collages I ever made and I love the spirit of it--the unbridled optimism, the joy, the freedom. A very literal friend wondered why the flowers were so large. I hardly knew what to say. "It's not realism," I murmured.
Horace and Amy are cats who behave like people. Like me, they love nature and a pastoral life. They live in a quieter, simpler time. When I create their lives on paper, I feel calm and peaceful. After this collage was finished, I took a walk in my own woods listening to the birds and wishing I could fly with them just for a little while and then I would come home.
