From a purpose-built free-standing (and gorgeous) studio, Danni is now reduced to a small space in her new retirement village home. Mind you, the house is an average three-bedroom sized house, so to many it would be quite adequate. It's just that, after her beloved studio, well... it's not the same.
In the process Danni has been divesting herself of the accumulated 'bits and pieces' previously collected, or made, to enhance her art practice. The lucky recipient of a box of these treasures was ME!!!!!
Above is a collage in which I've used some of Danni's 'bits'....the 'robe' (stained tissue on a wooden skewer), and a rusted piece from an old café umbrella. I've added some handwriting that accompanied a gift to me from a fellow blogger, and some copper paint.
This collage is now framed and is intended as a housewarming and thank you gift for her new home. Her box of 'bits' is busily inspiring my collages...and will do so for quite a while.
THANK YOU DANNI!
