Artists and Poets Friday


Collage Goddesses


Today's post for Friday which means Artists and Poets. The above photo is of the series of four Collage Goddesses. They have been created on 5" x 5" artist canvas with acrylic paint, handmade papers, clay, oil pastels and pan pastels and protected with decoupage fixative. Below are single photos of each creation.
Also below are my haiku.

We are sharing today with:

Collage Goddess ~ Athena



haiku

gone, not forgotten
your birthday, warm memories
love earth to heaven.
-o-

august month, kingly
regal lovers sign of lion
loved you so dearly.
-o-

songs of silence now
spirit strong living within
love surrounds me again.
-o-
(for Haiku My Heart)

  1. Beautiful works of art. I enjoyed each one. I don't consider myself an artist but I enjoy scrapbooking, card and tag making.

  5. Fantastic artwork! I really like the collages. Separate works, related, yet all different and all the same. Hope I am seeing these correctly that way.
    Love the haiku as well. So many meanings from these, each an essay in its own right. Perfect.

    Much Peace

  24. Thanks so much for showing them as a group... each canvas is spectacular on its own, but as a group it is even better... they all enhance each other... loved seeing them...xx

  25. Now I understand why you needed so many of the faces...they are each unique and quite lovely on the small canvas'. Beautifully done and would look most striking hung together on a wall.
