A recent assignment to make a house in a collage class I am taking particularly resonated with me. My dad was an architect and made dollhouses. I have been trying to incorporate some of this in my artwork, but had not figured out how. I think I have begin to find a way in to these structures. Last week, I made some sketches. This is my first attempt at an in-depth collage. I don’t really have a plan - just trying to respond to the objects I have already glued into place. I think this is nearly finished - I like the sparseness - though it does need a few more details before I call it done.

I would love to hear what you think about this new direction.
