dandy lion No. 4 - 5 x 7 coffee stain, collage, gouache & ink - Susan Black

New in my etsy shop We're (Missy D, Oliver + I ) having a collage-a-go-go !! Uh Huh !!

Off to hang bedding & sheets on the line (sighing), plant a few cheery orange pansies and then back to the teak topped desk for more mad, crazed collage-ing & drawing. I can't stop myself.

Such a good thing ;-)

& pour les scale of new big (12 x 15) size collage (it doesn't really look that big to me now ?!? )
my trusted associate Mr. I. M. Handsome (Oliver) pardon les blur & fuzzy focus -


  1. Look at you going "large". I love the large scale. Wouldn't that be fantastic in big frame. Looks great on the etsy page. We could use more shots to show scale on the blog.

  2. They have a marvellous ' What fun ! ' feel to them .

  3. I am loving these...
    Big is good. Tiny is good too. Especially when it looks like these!

    I've noticed you've been doing "Morning Pages"...Did you find the book after? Now that my living room {book abode} is getting near to finish I imagine mine and it's twin will show up any day...If you still want it. I also have "The Vein of Gold".

    Love to see the work flowing out of you...
    And all those summer flowers around your space...
    XO to you all.

  4. Hi Andrea (sweet blue) yes ... after borrowing The Artist's Way a billion times from my library I broke down and bought a copy so I could highlight stuff, write in the margins etcetera ... Such a great book and exactly the kind of "self" work I need to be doing now. I would LOVe " The Vein of Gold" and would love to swap a package of goodies with you. I'm very happy to have made your acquaintance my dear ... much love xoxo Susan & les Gang

    Thank you for the collage love ... I think I've found a wee happy niche. Hallelujah !!?!
