I so much enjoy doing small dimension collages. Here's a 2.75" x 2.75" (7 x 7 cm) piece entitled "Nothing Much to Say". I think it creates a humorous combination -- late 19th Century engraving with 1950s advertising photograph. The monochromaticity and small size creates an image cohesiveness which, I think "fools" the viewer at first into thinking it's a "legit" image (i.e., serious). Upon closer inspection, there's kind of a "double take" response. I treated this piece well by using a thicker mat and a nice metal frame. The only thing about that is that it is difficult to "re-coop" the expenses. Fortunately, I do not have to make a living on my art.
