collage day

health and happiness

i woke up tired as tired this morning.  my brain was not functioning, and i couldn't wake up.  i decided if i sat down on any soft surface, i would be done for the day.  so i decided to make collages.  i finished two, this one and another that i am going to use as the artwork for my artist packet.  

this one is constructed from pages of books, mostly first aid books and home medical volumes.  i also threw in some images from children's readers for some color.

it's 5x7 inches.  i'm thinking instead of selling it i might put it in the bathroom, matted up to 11x14 or 16x20.  of course i need to go buy a frame, as usual.  that size seems to disappear around here.  i have a collection of vintage first aid stuff in the guest bathroom--old glass doctor's jars, a metal first aid sign, and several tin first aid kits.  i think it might just work.
