Here's piece number two I created from one of the kitchen cabinet doors I spoke of in the last post. Again, this one's 12" X 18" and mostly collage-based. It's created with a vintage photo, maps, other vintage paper, found objects, image transfer, and acrylic paint.
Below's a detail shot of the upper left. The paper behind the domino pieces is from a vintage, handwritten letter.

I've had these two old kitchen cabinet doors sitting around my workspace for over a year now. What to do, what to do? I decided to depart for awhile from my typical assemblages-in-boxes and create something more collage-based. Below's what I came up with for one door.
In addition to the cabinet door substrate, this piece also includes found objects (including some cool piano parts), vintage paper and maps, acrylic paints, and part of a high school graduation (1937) photo.
One Swisher Sweet cigar box + one Boston elevated railway map from the 1940s + two wristwatch faces + one vintage photo + several vintage (1920s-1940s) post cards + a few rusty bits and pieces = "Mind Travel"
