I am thrilled that my mixed-media collage, entitled “No regrets, Coyote,” has sold to Gibsons, BC resident Del Lobo. The collage appeared in the recent juried exhibition Both Sides Now, which ran from Nov. 12 to Dec. 6 at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery. The show, inspired by the musical repertoire of Joni Mitchell, featured works from dozens of B.C. Sunshine Coast artists.
My collage incorporates magazine pictures, photos, rope, thread, and cigarettes. It was fun to start with a visual concept and let it unfold.
For me, Joni’s song “Coyote” evokes the call of the open road and reminds me of my early hitchhiking days. Joni is a huge popular favourite among locals on the Sunshine Coast; until her recent hospitalization following an aneurysm, she spent half of every year at her home in this area.
