I like how you don't go for the obvious (fins on the girl, maybe a shark instead of the poodle).

LOL! Tony, you're giving me wicked ideas like thinking "Jaws".

I like the concept. May I ask what software you use and how large (in pixels) are your master files?

Thanks! If you recall I'm a hopeless technophobe so have no idea how large the pixles are. Welcome any enlightenment, if you wish. I used Photo Gallery.

I'm a member of the local Art's League where a longtime established artist and gallery owner reviewed portfolios last Saturday. She liked my work but suggested I submit the paste-ups in upcoming juried "Collage Showing". This paste-up is presentable. The rest are a mess!

So these are physical collages and not strictly digital? That's great. I think collage works best in a physical form. My digital collages don't have the texture of physical art – no bent paper, rolls and imperfections that make it all more "real" and immediate.

Well, yes. They are physical collages (slivers of paper all over the place which my cat likes to bat around). I do like the "hands on" process. That immediacy you refer to. One image leads to another. Almost like writing by the headlights.

I have been scanning the paste-ups to meticulously touch up. With "Sea Princess" I loosened up with the Exacto blade so the original would do well behind a thin frame, image not touching glass as the artist suggested.

My other original paste-ups are way too imperfect. So, I plan to find some middle ground.

Is it your own creation?
