explored the possibilities . . . art, life, love . . . in three words

. . . radically departed from
my usual style and method of creating art to make this small collage. And while I like the piece, I don't feel like I actually created anything, but rather used others' creativity to further mine.
See that tiny little piece of orange at the very bottom of the right side? That is the only piece in the entire collage that I made myself. The background is some brown fibrous paper that my sister wrapped Christmas presents in one year. The egg and the yellow bits are from an ad in the National Geographic.
I love eggs, egg shapes, speckled and colored eggs . . . they are examples of nature's perfection. I have never seen an egg that is not perfectly shaped. I couldn't resist doing something with this egg when I saw it. Perhaps I should go in search of real eggs and take my own pictures of them. I would definitely feel better about making collages of those pictures. A long time ago, I purchased a huge set of egg prints on Ebay. I have never used them for anything. Perhaps I could scan them and edit them on the computer and then use them. Maybe I am concerned about nothing. . . after all, I see tons of collages using magazine pictures.
