I've never been away from home at Christmas, but that song always makes me wistful. Maybe that had something to do with my sudden urge to make these little (4 x 4 x 1 1/2") house collages on canvas this week. They were fun to do. I think I'll continue with the small canvases, but move to different subjects. I think I'll try embellishing some too. I may add buttons, spool feet and handles, etc. to some mini collages, and may do some on wood blocks too.
Here is a photo of a trio of the houses I'm calling "It Takes A Village". Unoriginal, but I like it.
This is the first one I did.
For this one I added a little bird cut from a fairytale book page.
For this house, I went to the split-level and evergreen trees. It's fun creating my own neighborhood.
And here is the image I used on my Christmas card this year. When I saw the small 8th century statue, Flight to Egypt, in an ancient cathedral in Moissac France this summer I knew I wanted to take a photo of it for my card.
Merry Christmas to all, and Peace on Earth.
