I’m a big fan of this one.  How often can you use a green like this?? 1/2 digital and half cut paper.  It was included in the inaugural show for the Center for Arts at the Armory, the fabulous art space in Somerville, MA, back in 2009?  2008?  Oy, my brain.  It still hangs there, in a spot right when you walk in, to the left.  Say hi to Allen for me.

This one was included in Tufts University’s Annual Show in 2009.  I think they were surprised to learn that it was a straight-off-the-computer digital print. : /  I spoke about it to a modest crowd during “Tufts Days” that summer.  Someone asked about the image of the baby in the background.  Another pointed to the head of an elephant.  Well, OK, then!  It just goes to show you a). art is what you make of it, and b). collage is AWESOME.  I still love it and try to embrace it with my current work whenever I can, but I’m pretty cheap and hate wasting materials when something doesn’t work out.  haha.
