Viaticum – 17.5 cm x 12.5 cm (7″ x 5″)

One of the things I love about collage are those unexpected surprises that just appear in your work. I was making a few quick collages to warm up, using the random bits of paper that were on my desk.

I wanted a bit of text so ripped a page from the nearest book, which happened to be a tiny Spanish-English dictionary. Then I just carried on. When I was placing the black strip, I noticed the word viaticum was visible. So, of course, I needed to know what that meant. Here’s what the Oxford English Dictionary says:  “The Eucharist as given to a person near or in danger of death.” Kind of appropriate for that swooning woman I started the whole thing with.

I have been collaging, but I haven’t been posting. That, I plan to rectify. More soon.

A good day is one spent at the art table with scissors, glue, and piles of interesting papers. In my exploration of collage, I paraphrase Roosevelt, I'm doing what I can, with what I have, from where I am (in life and location).
