Donna Parker

I sat on the back porch today and turned an existing abstract painting that was kinda bugging me into a collage. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, but most of all pleased with how it felt to make it. I used 2 different books -- an old teenage novel called "Donna Parker Takes a Big Leap", and a second children's picture book by Munsch about a girl befriending the wind. Funny, I chose them because they were the only books on the shelf I was comfortable cutting up, but when I got them open and started to create, I realized that there was a nice thread between the two.

The result is this:(detail)
