However, sometimes, a deadline looms, and there's not time to have pieces scanned. This wasn't a problem until recently, when I began making collages larger than the 9"x12" size my scanner accommodates.
Of course, I tell myself it will never happen again, then, gulp, it does. Usually, it takes a few days to get an image scanned. I hope to build that into my deadlines in the future.
You might ask, how about a photograph? Well, that works fine for some art, but in my experience, photographs don't capture the nuances of the antique engravings that are often part of my work.
Below are examples of three collages that were scanned recently, and the images of them that were posted before the scans. The collages were framed at this point, so they had to be removed from the frames. Happily, my framer put them back together at no additional charge, one benefit of establishing a strong, working relationship with her.
|The Grand Tour: Bird's Eye view - scanned|
|The Grand Tour: Riding the Waves - scanned|
|The Grand Tour: Wild Things - scanned|
|You know what I am going to say, the difference between|
the two is that obvious!
