Here are a few more pieces in the Passages Show:
After retiring from the University of Californis Riverside in 2003, I decided to revisit my interest in making art, which began in fifth grade.
UCR's Extension Program offered a variety of art classes, and first I engaged painting. It was fun, but my abilities were not up to my expectations.
So in 2004 I took a class in collage, based on the use of torn paper. That lead me on my present course, using images from magazines for collage.
It isn't reasonable to try to explain how or why various components of any composition work for me, as they say, it just feels right.
Hopefully, some of these images will appeal to others.
