Melinama does Illustration Friday: "Choose"

In my mind, when I began this, it was going to be a lot of little objects (toaster, heart, pig, etc) all over the page. I started the painting and then I cut it in half and chopped half of it up into little pieces and glued them on the other half and then doodled with black paint. That's just what came out.

Hola Melinama, I haven't seen your sweet face much on Caray caray since I got back from Mexico, so I came looking for you here. I enjoy your art work and think I will go off and cut up some of my new photos and put them together in a series of Mexico collages. So thanks for the inspiration.

Hi, Melinama```I like it. I had a student from Milan a few years ago, a young architect who used to take the 2hour busride in to Mantattan every day to volunteer at a museum and take art lessons. She also worked with one of the artists who put the mosaics into the subway. She started doing a lot of work with collage and loved it. I should pick up my paintbrush , but with work and family there are so many other things I have to do...maybe I'll paint again this spring when I can work out on the patio where the light is great. I've missed seeing you at Caray Caray, too.

I really like the colors and the bold lines. It's like looking at clouds; I've spent the last 5 minutes finding cool shapes in it --elephants, snails, a mustached turtle...

By the way, that xkcd comic strip (which I have been hooked on since you told us about it last year) had a funnt piece yesterday that reminded me of you... Take a look, if you haven't already: xkcd

Hmmm... looks a bit like a flow chart of the imagination! I wonder what would happen if you filled in the blanks? Maybe I need to try that! In the meantime it's a beautiful composition that reminds me of one of my greatest heroes, Paul Klee.

Thanks for your kind comments on my post, by the way.
