One of the few benefits of being older is there is some personal history now I can pull from when creating new artwork. My latest craze doing mixed media collage is benefiting from various other expressions on similar subjects done in the past. Case in point: In 2004 I did a watercolor of some orange ice cream and multi flavored popsicles (because I used to love to eat them). In 2009 I turned that painting into a digital composite with some scanned buttons (art using scanned buttons kept me entertained for about a year.) Now, I used some new Japanese washi origami papers to create the ice cream/popsicles and placed them onto a recent landscape photograph of trees printed on Hiromi kozo-shi paper.
