Collage! Cards and stuff

My recent visit to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond also brought another discovery.  I was quite taken by a portrait of Marian Anderson by Beauford Delaney, which I first saw on the cover of the VMFA magazine.  Here's a link to the VMFA blog with a nice piece on the portrait.

Marian entered my scan collection and this is the collage that emerged. I don't recall what sent me in the 'retro' direction, but once there, I just followed that retro vibe.

Birthdays are always fun because I like to make collage cards with my friends in mind.  Here's a couple recent ones.

At this point, most of my collages are digital, using found images, some of which are enhanced or altered. Occasionally, I still create traditional cut and paste collages.
