While living in Paris, I had a tall stack of glossy French magazines that I would read over and over. On an ordinary day, I began to cut out all the images and words that inspired me. When paging through again to make sure I found everything, the cut out windows created new imaginative landscapes and stories. Those magazines didn't make it back home, though after our last art experience, the idea came flooding back.

With magazines galore, cutting and pasting was the technique for the first Art Experience this summer. For me, one particular artist gave me a spark and another artist pushed it into another direction. This time I concentrated on the negative spaces of the images and pieced them together while thinking of color and line.
I love my daughter's image...the cloud creating images and stories for us to discover and the subsequent raindrops.
