|"Why Girls Go Wild" - Conventional Collage|
The collage is a conventional work on heavy card stock. I used handmade and art paper, found objects, postage stamps, ephemera from magazines and books, and of course the paper moon photo.
I wish I knew something about the two women on the postcard. I wondered what brought them to the photo studio to have their day on the Moon. Their clothes suggest the early 1900's. Are they friends, family? Was this planned or a photo taken on the spur-of-the-moment?
I couldn't help but sing the popular 1930's song while I worked on this piece. "It's only a paper moon...hanging over a cardboard sea...but it wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me."
Did they believe in each other? My Romantic heart hopes they did.
