Redwood Assemblage

i've been posting a few of these on facebook and a friend there asked me if i were interested in collaborating: i take pictures of them all together and send him the file and he go nuts with printmaking experiments. should he come up with something we agree upon, perhaps a very small edition of 20 or 40 be made and we split that to do whatever we wish. we split the costs of the paper and ink and who knows, maybe we have fun ...maybe something more happens. who knows. it was really cool that he even suggest this!

i'm up for it. as i say i'm challenged with finding a good photo setup...lighting isn't great in this loft, my space is a mess and i have no 'real background' to place these on. perhaps i take these fellas out for some fresh air and find a place in town. who knows. i'm up for it. i have a few more in the queue and then if the sun stays out i'm game. in the meantime, enjoy #29. little charred pieces all joined together...they are like toast slabs. i love this redwood too, it is weathered and silver gray like a beautiful horse.

Sounds like a wonderful collaboration. So take your wood pieces on field trips! What fun.

I love collaborations, and these pieces are exciting--love the burned parts and the weathered look!

Sounds like a great idea for starting the collaboration! I always thought your photos look great. I love your random backgrounds such as textures from different materials or newspapers. I’m sure you’ll find something just right for this project!

Fun???? your having fun..hmmmmnn..nope,not supposed to be that way..no. Your supposed to wear all black and be distant and brooding..an artist suffering for her art. HA! Seriously, I love these and what a joy to have a collaboration to play with too! Now go forth and HAVE FUN!!!!
