Found Art Tuesday 4-10-07: Connections

The connections theme at first seemed difficult. With so much cluttering my brain as of late, I could not get my arms around the topic. Sitting at my artists reception I had plenty of time to work out the theme. And what I thought about is sort of the bigger picture. We are all connected through Earth. IT does not matter what country we live in, or what we do for a living, or what color our skin is. We are the World. And that is my title. So to depict this kind of connection, I cut out paper dolls from a map. We can be linked today through the technologies of cell phones and computers so those are included as well. All we have to do is reach out. This was a simple straightforward collage done on watercolor paper. The paper dolls lend themselves to a book mark format.

This is a great theme and quite a complex concept to illustrate. I love what you have done and how you have interpreted it.

Great bookmark!

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, I am very new at this whole blogging thing and was tickled to find responses so quickly. Comments are like unexpected little packages that you find at your door. I am excited about "found art" and can't wait for the next theme to be revealed ( :
I like your work, do you have an etsy or ebay store where i can see more?
