Plaster Collage Experiment
After my workshops on paste paper (check out my blogs on www.originalartkoser.com) I am now diving into plaster collage that I read about in Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine. I have no plan or image in mind so this may take awhile. I chose a 16x20 canvas and put modeling paste on one side, next I scrapped some shapes into the wet paste. My plan is to make a high key color collage in a whimsical child like style. The swipes of side colors will peek through as I add papers and paste papers to make my collage. Here is page 1 in my experimental journey.

I took to retirement like a duck to water! Now I have the time and energy to create art. I like to go on experimental side ventures within the various media, techniqes and styles of painting. At the present I am exploring paste paper mixed media collage. Take a workshop or two and I am off taking a thimble full of knowledge and turning it into a torrent of art work. Who knows what is next but I sure look forward to the learning adventure.
