I Had the Craziest Dream, mixed media on canvas, 10”x10”
As I continue to expand on ideas and materials used in the 2011 Project, it’s time to works some more with old sheet music. I repeated a pattern I started using with old maps in 2009. The pattern is inspired by the yosegi pattern in Japanese textiles. I then used the pattern in postcard pieces in 2012. This time, using vintage, 1940’s sheet music I also captured the distinct color palette used in printed material in that era. Much of my collage work is textile-inspired. I did not plan for it, but I couldn’t help noticing that this piece has the feel of 1940’s fabric. This is the first small experiment, more to come….
In the meantime, a clip of Helen Forrest singing I Had the Craziest Dream from the move Springtime in the Rockies can be found here.
