Unintended lunar landscape semi-abstract by 


This mixed media collage evolved from a start of blue into this lunar landscape. The canvas paper has been layered with collage material, tissue paper, acrylic, pen and wax oil pastels.

PS: I just noticed that on the right hand side peeking from behind the ‘blue mountain’ is the top square of a suduko puzzle… no, there is nothing I won’t collage into my work!

This piece was completed in March 2008, co-inciding with the passing of a family friend. As such this piece always reminds me of him. This was my blog ‘tribute’ at the time:

I don’t have any real uncles, but growing up, I had a few honorary ones. Loudest among those was Ian. He would burst through the door far too early on a Saturday morning with “it’s only me… tall, dark and handsome.” He would then sit down for his cup of coffee and where possible, gloat over a recent dragon’s win. Sometimes he’d spy a piece of my art – “What do you call that, kiddo? A montage?”

He arrived to pinch the motoring section of the paper. I would call him stingy, tight… and he would gleefully retort that he was thrifty. He was proud of his frugality and could put a scotsman to shame. If I was really lucky, I escaped Saturday morning without one of his jokes. But more often than not, I had to endure one.

If I had some photos of beer, perfectly mown lawns or golf fairways (not bunkers!), I’d make them into a slideshow now with perhaps a Roy Orbison track as ‘background music.’ I don’t have any of those things though, so a ‘montage’ will have to do. So long. You will be missed by this ’sheila’.
