I realized last year while writing an artist statement, that collage to me is both a representation and an interpretation of life. Collage is a layering of things and so are our lives. Collage is a layering of papers, fabric, beeswax...whatever our supplies may be. It's also a layering of colors + textures built up. Our lives are a layering of family, job, things we enjoy doing, plus things like memories and responsibilities.

Busy week and weekend with my birthday and Mother's Day both on Sunday. Be back next week with a prompt. Have a good weekend!

Wonderful interpretation of collage Laura. How true! I also love the Philo quote. Have a great weekend, Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday :)

You and I have already spoken of this, and I wholeheartedly agree. It's a rather perfect analogy of life.
