previously: this is one of a series of mini artworks using scraps and fragments of painted paper and card, making something out of art-related ‘detritus’ that might have been previously discarded as non-useful. this happened after evaluating [or culling] much of the stuff i had accumulated over the last fifteen years, and starting all over again…

technically, some of them are ‘recycled’ fragments from the torn edges of old prints.

with over fifty miniscule collages to share with big wide world [as an acquaintance artist friend so helpfully said: “you’ve just gotta put it out there!”, quoting another artist], i think this one-a-day approach might take me some time… thinking maybe i should ramp it up to five-a-day? goodness me, these tiny fruits of my eco recycling labours!!

i had a dream the other night about oil paintings, or rather a character [unidentified] in the dream asked why i didn’t paint in oils like other artists, and i made some excuse about the fumes and having a tiny studio to work in [this is true].
