Collage and Poetry on the Porch

After being inspired by the Rehoboth Art Show yesterday, Victoria, Pat and I decided to spend an afternoon on our own art project – I proposed we make collaged accordion folded books with written descriptions that would be used in a thematic poem. We had a great work environment – Victoria’s screened porch. As we worked, we had time for conversation, serious and funny, and we talked about our images and color choices. Each of the three books is different but also alike in many ways. We read our poems as well – interesting! The whole process reminded me of how women friends working together on art – quilting, writing poetry, making collages, painting – enjoy a special bond within a circle of creativity. It was a good afternoon and our books turned out *very* well.
