pan pastels! i love them. i don't run across many people who use them. what a mess, but they're awesome. 

you've done a wonderful job of making it look aged and work. maybe a scrap of something that was very important to someone.           

the line in the middle makes it look like the paper was bound like a book and it's sitting open  (the spine is broken) with the center showing. the size and the fact that it looks like it ought to be folded makes me think of a passport. <------imagination gone a little wild! hehe

how are you? :D

I'm OK.  My work, on the other hand, is crap lately. Nothing comes together. I throw a lot of ripped up paper in the trash.
(Oh, wait, maybe I can use that in another collage. Damn.)

Thanks for your comments.  Untitled 227 was a fun piece to work on. Influenced (if I'm being honest) by Karen Green's small collage pieces.

Yes, PanPastel. I love them, too. Sometimes they're the perfect solution. I got most of mine when they first came out in larger, two-part containers and each one has it's own sponge/applicator in the bottom. I've used them, too, after putting acrylic ground for pastels on the surface. It makes for an aggressive surface that really holds the pastel. Any pastel but it works nicely with the PanPastel.

I love passports. Got an old one at a flea market in Budapest and have used copies of it over and over. Hmmm, maybe I should take a look at it now.  Thanks.

Ken

Oh those words warm my heart "mixed media collage ". One of these days I'll have to get some of those pastels. I like the texture here and the color and I'm not usually a bright type person, really nice job Ken.

Thank you, ma'am.
The texture comes from the acrylic ground for pastels. Much like in the class work #2 drawing.

I have to go to your page more . I almost can't imagine you working that large, I'd have a hard time freeing up but you seem to have done it .

It was a challenge but one of my reasons for taking the course was to force myself to work larger. I knew we'd be working large because one items on the supply list was a roll of drawing paper, 100lb, either 36 or 48 inches wide.

Grungy but orderly and with a wonderful light palette - nice, Ken.
