Need a holiday today?

You can celebrate one of three things as far as I know. Today is Doctor's Day, National Hot Dog Day, and the anniversary of the patent of the eraser topped pencil. Thank goodness for all of those things, especially erasers.

Okay, here's my latest piece. This one took nearly 20 hours to complete, start to finish. I may be slow, but this one was intense with lots and lots of images gathered, altered, cut, colored and pieced together.

Be the Poem


copyright by Marsha Jorgensen 3/30/09
8 x 10 collage using lots of images from lots of places, many from magazines, and that were scanned, digitally altered, printed, trimmed, and still hand colored. Images used that should be noted: first two vintage faces from Spark Your Imagination's Elements No. 1, third vintage face from an image sharing site, vintage torsoes from the public domain, legs and feet from lisasalteredart.etsy.com all reprinted, trimmed, and hand colored.


Thank you for all of your kind comments here lately. It is always a joy to open up and read your sweet thoughts.

I'm off to celebrate the day with a shower, post office trip, and laundry doing! Then, I'm going to celebrate you and visit your blogs and wish you good wishes for a great week!
