Quotes of the day

"What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness, and say, 'This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you, all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned and you with it, dust of the dust!' Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer, 'Never have I heard anything more divine'?"
Friedrich Nietzsche

"If you hear a voice within you say 'You cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."
Vincent Van Gogh

Faking it ... again

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 21, 2014, 6:31 AM
So, I set myself a challenge to take a single picture and make a range of digital collages out of it in the style of as many as possible of my fellow (traditional) collagistes on deviantArt. 

Miss Charlotte Cracroft by hogret-stock


It was a surprisingly challenging task - and a real learning curve as I tried to imagine the choices and process of artists whose work is very different from mine. 
Here are the first few hommage pieces, side by side with a collage by the "real" artist.

A la Crussol12 by hogret     Gaining Ground by Crussol12

A la Robert-Alan by hogret      temptation by Robert-Alan

A la Kanchan by hogret     Homage to Klimt by KanchanCollage

Successful?  Or not? 
More to come ..

Anyone like to join me in the challenge?
Pick a source picture or scrap of something.
Choose three of your fellow collagistes.
See what you come up with!
