Somewhere over the years I began to blur the lines between photography and painting. Everything I did during the 1970's and early 80's was pretty much straight photography. Sometime during the mid 1980's I began working in collage, combining my photographs with paint and mixed media.
Later I ventured away from my own photographs and started to incorporate photographs I found in antique shops, flea markets and the like. During the early and mid 1990's I enjoyed quite a lot of gallery success with this body of work. I had two primary groups of work. Nudes and "old people". They were not always old, just old photographs. I even did several commissions.
Every now and then I revisit this work. Here is a piece I did last winter. "Party Girls", mixed media collage on birch panel. The piece measures 12" X 12" and is framed in a museum float frame. currently recession priced at $300.00.
