Beefy Art

Working on another art scrapbook, using ephemera I have saved for collages.  I knew those bumper stickers from the state fair would come in handy in one day.  And yes, my name is Tofu, and I like to paint big juicy steaks.

Wycinanki Dream

Wycinanki Dream, 24”x36”, mixed media on board

This can’t be called traditional Wycinanki (cut-paper folk art), but it definitely was the source of my inspiration.

Mysteries in a Box

Sorting and organizing my collage boxes I found these postcards.  I have no recollection of where I got them, and they predate my sending and receiving mail art.  But I do like the idea of recycling and repurposing old paint-by-numbers paintings like this.
