Above is a shot of my Bits Basket and a collage as I first laid it out... and below is the finished piece.
Bits and pieces find purpose in my little daily collages. The subject has to do with the people who are served by TriMet which provides public transportation in Portland on the local bus system, the light rail and the streetcars. The ticket is an old one and the Travel bit served to mark the contents of a drawer in my studio. Other bits include wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, faces from a magazine image, a paint sample, stenciled paper, and a scrap of hand painted fabric.
