These are two torn paper collages of my children that were used as examples in the Torn Paper Collage at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center, Graham, TX, October 7 and 8th.My demo which is not finished is of my third child and oldest. Cindy Parker, one of the Canvas by Canvas members, and her husband, Danny were instrumental in getting this workshop together.
Cindy used to live in Arlington and she would take us everywhere in her SUV and we loved riding with her because she never got mad when we gave her wrong directions. She is a great painter and was always willing to help one of us with our drawing and she was a hard CBC worker. One day we went to Graham to hang a show, these two (Cindy and Danny) were introduced, their eyes locked on each other, she stopped working, forgot all about us and began a wonderful new life.These two were soon married, she moved to Graham and we don't feel like we've lost her but gained a whole new set of Graham friends through the Parkers. Canvas by Canvas will have a spring show at the museum.Paper was just not the medium for Danny as he likes to work in welded metal sculpture and uses random pieces of metal and found art. He has had several solo shows in the area.

My next two day collage workshop will be in Granbury November 29 and 30. If you are interested sign up with Diana Littlejohn email@example.com. You don't have to be an artist to attend, but a good attitude willing to take a risk and experiment and enjoy tearing and gluing paper while learning a new technique. Also drop by the Shanley House and see the Fall Festival Juried Show sometime during the month. I have 3 pieces in the show and won honorable mention with one.
The Arlington Museum of Art presents the annual Artist's Showcase and the 6 week exhibit celebrates the vitality of visual art in the metroplex during October and November.The exhibit is varied in media and subject matter and works by amateur and professional artists from the community can be seen in the Main Gallery and Mezzanine. It is located at 201 West Main in Arlington. I have 2 pieces in the show.Below is a slide show from Smilebox of some of the images from the collage workshop and my first time to use this program. I had used slide.com but they are not in business anymore. The music can be muted.
