Paper and cloth

Started making a series of mixed media
collages, based on (randomly selected)
pages from a Walt Whitman volume

I: "...sewing or washing"
II: "There was a child went forth..."

detail from I

details from II

"The messages of great poets to each man and
woman are, Come to us on equal terms, only then
can you understand us, we are no better than you,
what we inclose you inclose, what we enjoy
you may enjoy."
(Walt Whitman: Preface to Leaves of Grass)
