Collage Mania


My household is asleep. Consequently, I finally have a moment to post my submissions to Virginia Spiegel's amazing fundraiser, Collage Mania. It's part of her larger effort titled Fiberart For a Cause which raises money for the American Cancer Society. Forgive, please, for washed out color. These were tough to photograph and didn't scan nicely.

5.125” x 4.75”
Donated in memory of my Grandma Anne: all around tough broad, cancer survivor, crocheter extraordinaire, passionate gardener. She has passed on, but not from cancer.

Life Radiant
7.625” x 5.375”
Donated on behalf of Grandpa Ben, doting husband of Anne, unconditional adorer of spoiled granddaughter Cathy. Grandpa Ben succumbed to lung cancer during my childhood and his passing still remains one of my most sorrowful losses.

Both pieces are mounted on 10"x8" mat board, ready for framing:

Dear Cathy,
I loved your collages, esp. the pothos. I know what you mean about the chins, but w/o the padding we would have turkey neck, which I think is even worse!

Keep up the good work,
Linda Laird
