here kitty

My completed cat collage. Done working from this photo. (Taken a year ago I see!)

I really should diversify beyond my pets at some point.

I'm enjoying collage so much - especially this kind of project, using cut pieces and putting them together to find the best way to show light and depth - it's like a puzzle of sorts.

I've started a facebook page to keep all my collaging news ... and I'm hard at work on my next piece already, something very different to this.

funny, molly, i've been thinking about starting to work on this. it seems overwhelming. i wanted to re-create a painting of a ship in the ocean... but it does feel a lot like painting, which i have no idea how to do... your piece is inspiring! thanks.

I totally can't paint either, in fact I didn't think I was artistically inclined at all in the painting/drawing/shading arena. But placing bits of paper is way easier than brushstrokes, and way easier to fix one's mistakes!
The rule of thumb is always to start with the background - which challenges me in a very good way.
Good luck!

I Love this Molly. I get the puzzle aspect of it. There are some artist doing amazing stuff witch collage. I can't seem to not draw or paint over it. (No idea what that's all about) Keep going though because I think you're on to something wonderful here. :D

I've been away too long! And coincidentally just read this moments after posting about my own black kitty cat encounter. That's beautiful. And I'm so happy to see you're still here. Can't wait to binge on the blogs I've missed while "away".
