Sometimes the collages I make respond to the page of War and Peace I'm working with. More often they don't, at least thus far. Because we've been cross-referencing the Russian text with the English translation, one day I can read the bit of Tolstoy's text preserved here and see how it jibes with the image of these Hansel and Gretel-like children. Is there a fortuitous correspondence amongst the image, paint and words, or only silence? Maybe the oval of words is a harvest moon and only that.
