What a morning!  Not internet, not TV, no watching the Tour de France stage, no checking email, etc., etc.  Thunderstorms, internet back, internet out while finally watching Tour.  Ran errands.  More thunderstorms looming.  But my garden is happy with all the rain, the repeat of the Tour stage is on, and I’m finally back online with the theme for the photo challenge today,  “Collage.”

Collage (from the French: coller, “to glue”;[1] French pronunciation: ​[kɔ.laʒ]) is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippings, ribbons, paint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.  (Wikipedia)

I’m not featuring a photo collage of any sort, but rather a collage that our younger daughter did before going to and graduating from art school.  This is the kitchen in our former house.  On the left is an ink drawing, on the right, the collage  I cherish this both because she did it and because we no longer live in the house.  Although she hasn’t updated her website for some years, you can see some of the art she’s done at her website.
