Definitely a change -- isn't it fun to just go in whatever direction your heart...uh...art...takes you! The shape reminds me of an arm reaching out or pointing in a new direction. Very interesting!

Taittems, WW, Jana, Swampgrrl, Ellen: Thanks.

Detlef: Haven't thought about that song for years and you're right. It looks just like a t-shirt I had in the early '80s, minus the ripped sleeves.

Himavant: all courtesy of one magazine.

Was this fun to do? It makes me think of a ransom note...perhaps someone has stolen another person's heart...I dunno... I love the colors and the sense of fun here...playing around with collage is very liberating sometimes. Is this a "real" collage, or digital? Is the background a piece of a painting that didn't get to stay on the stretchers?

Many thank-yous. It is entirely an 'analog collage' and, as you said Carla, it's a scrap of a painting that I cut off the stretcher. The only digital part is the author's name.

I love the boldness, the colors and the quotation.
I immediately googled Blaise Pascal and found this tidbit. (he was unconscious for 15 days! whoa)

On November 8, 1654, he was involved in an accident at the Neuilly bridge where the horses plunged over the parapet and the carriage nearly followed them. Fortunately, the reins broke and the coach hung halfway over the edge. Pascal and his friends emerged unscathed, but the sensitive philosopher, terrified by the nearness of death, fainted away and remained unconscious for some time.

Yes, I remember that one when I was doing French Philosophy...
"Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne peut pas connaitre..."
How true!!!
I love the collage, Andrea!

Everyone seems to love it and so do I but that doesn't help me understand if that's a gun, a flag, a penis or an axe.

I don't suppose that's important, is it?

Thanks for your suggestion about the cradled boards, Andrea. I'm not sure how those are different from uncradled. (??)
I do paint the sides, you can see them at http://static.flickr.com/81/247833586_31e522211c_b.jpg
But I'm wondering if I should go with the 1.5 inch instead the thinner ones I've been using. I do so love your small art pieces (except everytime I see one I want to buy, it's already sold!)
