west side stories

by gl. at 11:45 pm

last night i attended, rather than hosted, a collage night! after travelling towards a studio buried in the west hills, it was nice to create without feeling like i was neglecting my hostess duties, as well as glean ideas & tips about supplies and structure. but it wasn't worth $20, though, which is what i paid to be there. scarlet star studios hosts an equally good (if not better) collage night for free. and the facilitator, who seemed pretty nice, had a disturbing tendency to interrupt me and tell me what to do or not do with my collage, even going so far as to remove an element (!), which i view as a fairly appalling facilitator violation.

i kind of like the collage that came out of it, though. it's larger than my normal size and collaged onto matteboard:

["wanting more"]

the star in the middle is mars at its spectacular 2003 perihelic opposition, which is very appropriate as that's the star & event scarlet star studios is named for. :)
