Collage 207

Sometimes Lynn and I are unsure of who made which collage as we work together all the time, side by side, sharing materials, color and inspiration. The dead giveaway, however, is my use of religious materials. This one features Krishha which I sourced at the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath in Bangalore, India, and from Blossom Bookstore, also in Bangalore. And some Christian text, too. You can see "Jesus, The Way". One of the lines is, "Jesus saw God everywhere". I love that. That's true spirituality.

On this page of the text, there is a dance at the Iogel's in Moscow. Sonya has just turned down Dolokhov's marriage proposal. "Natasha fell in love from the moment she entered the ballroom. She was not in love with anyone in particular, but with everyone. She fell in love with whomever she looked at, the moment she looked at him." I remember feeling like that as a young girl. -- Lola
