I was asked by the Art Walk Committee for a 4x5 painting that they auction each year as a fund raiser. After 2O years of little paintings, which are so hard for me, especially with my arthritis, I thought a collage might be the answer. I had just finished a show in Pueblo at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center titled Representing the West, judged by Walter Piehl. I made prints of the paintings from the show , the size I needed, cut them up and glued them to 5x7 canvas, added the drawing and paint. I had so much fun!!
