I got this new book by Nita Leland in the mail over the week-end. I finally had a chance to look through it this week. A quote from the book………. ” As a collage artist, seek to be: artistically aware, environmentally aware, spiritually aware…open-minded, playful, fun-loving, child-like, hard-working, creative, spontaneous, intuitive, original, flexible, open to change, non judgmental, patient, adventuresome, impulsive, energetic, risk-taking, daring”…………READY for ANYTHING!
This is really something to strive for. Nita has some really great information along with projects outlined if you have never done collage. There are as many ways to collage as there are to paint. You’ll have a lot of fun with this book………available from Amazon with a number of pages to preview. I’m prejudiced of course…….my work is featured on two pages and a part of the montage of painting images on the cover.
This is also a beautiful book, made to be used. The book has spiral binding inside so it will lay flat while you are using it and referencing demos.
