matter over mind..


mixed media and found objects on altered postcard

i love it when this happens..
i'm gettin' my zen on in the studio, cutting, gluing, pasting collages today...i think i know how it's all fitting together...and then WHaM, i go to paste something down, turn it over, and realize i like the other side better. this reminded me of a college friend who sometimes turned her paintings upside down as she worked, i imagine to thwart the left brain a bit, take her to another place in her head and see what materializes. making art can be such a trip, teetering between pure reckless abandon and logical thought.

can you say schizoid?

and um, does anyone else think the dude above looks like darren from 'bewitched?' the first (and better) darren, in my opinion..

just as i read this entry..a guy named darren walked into a's place!
and yes..YOUR darren does look like the bewitched darren..the good one.
can you say inspired!!???
after watching you work in your studio..wondering what it is you are making..and then to SEE what you have been making..wow!!
i'm gonna run home right now and get to snipping and pasting.

i have this problem where i find a piece of paper..usually an old life magazine page..and i can not decide which side to use at all.these pages go into a special pile for future consideration.

Darren and Willie
I think it is his ears and his hair that make him look like Darren #1, Dick Sargent. The man in the collage below it when I first looked at it I thought was a young Willie Nelson after he got rid of his flat top hairstyle and before he grew the beard.

i thought 'wally cook' looked a tad like michael caine, actually! but, now that you mention the whole beardless willie nelson thing....hmmmmmm. maybe he moonlighted as a square dance caller in the 70's to make rent and pay for boooooooooze??????? ;D

Re: Darren and Willie
A cashier at a drive thru once asked me if anyone had ever told me that I looked like like Steven Segal and about a month ago someone in a bar asked me if anyone had ever told me that I looked like Carlos Santana. Oh, Lord, What can it mean?

Re: Darren and Willie
You know, the more that I look at Wally the more I can see Michael Caine. Funny, I have never associated Michael Caine and Willie Nelson. I added you too.
