An Apple A Day

I decided to try a new approach for my tree collages today.  Remember the trees I drew a week ago?  Well, I made copies of the black and white images and used them as part of my collage papers for my trees!

And everyone knows, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!  But what about a collage a day?  I think it keeps the Creativity Zapper away!

An apple and pear tree:

Oh, and I almost forgot!  I used my gelli-printed deli papers and my Prismacolor pencils to add a touch of color.

A weeping cheery and orange tree:

Do you have a favorite?  I’d love to know what you think!

Hug a tree today!  🙂

  7. I love the exaggeration of the leaves and fruit. Very modern. I think Picasso and Matisse would love your work. 🙂

  9. Jill, oh my I just love your enthusiasm and freedom and the willingness to play with shapes and color! There is Excitement here!
    Willingness to Take Risks….. is one of the most important things artists need, and need to jealously hold on to.
    the collages are ALL wonderfully expressive and colorful. I would say, IMO, that the red apple collage has a clear design, contrasts, colors and balance to it. Very Pleasing group of collages you’ve created Jill. 🙂
