Friday Collage (Catching up AGAIN!) Wk18-21




ISM




The theme for May's Collages was Social Issues. For Wk18, I chose a few of the "isms" that still bubble up - Age, Race and Sex.












Homelessness



For Wk19, I moved onto homelessness and how we walk right by it













CO2


My daughter walked by and asked - "What's with the bow?" I really wasn't sure why I added it and then I said "It's a gift we're leaving for the future generation... Global warming." (Wk 20)













Political Games

And finally for Wk21... I get so frustrated with the games our politician play - we've a hot bed of issues and I thought tic-tac-toe (a game that doesn't require much skill, is dependent on who goes first, and usually ends in a draw) reflects what the Dems & Reps are doing.



The theme for June's Collages is World Travels. aaahhh... maybe next year I'll travel... this week Hubby and I are slipping down to Ashland to see some plays (really looking forward to this mini vacation.)

Your collages are great Kim. Your homeless one is very powerful.

Wow Kim!! I love how you captured the social issues. Each one really spoke to me, especially Global Warming. Not a very nice present to leave to our children and grandchildren.

Keep up the great work@!

Great to have you back at what you do so well. These are very powerful pieces.

Dianne said...

Welcome back Kim!! Your collages are wonderful - I agree with Angela on the homeless one - it does leave a powerful message.

Sande said...

Very interesting, and each so unique! The homeless one speaks to me the most.
World Travels should be a nice, light change...

19 is my favorite. Such a touching message--and so true, unfortunately.

Fantastic collages, as always. I miss them when you don't post. I'm amazed at the diverse designs you come up with. That homeless one should be on a poster for everyone to see.
