“In the Driveway” is an original, handcut paper/mixed media collage on 5×7 matboard.
Another juxtaposition. Here I love the rather childlike look and feel of the painted text and the house cut-out. Add a flashy car from yesteryear and BAM! We’re not in suburbia anymore.
The background text is from my vintage car club buddy’s newsletter collection – transformed into sky and landscape with a bit of acrylic. An old atlas gives us the house (it’s Kentucky, as I thought of “My Old Kentucky Home” when I cut it out – corny, I know). But the pièce de résistance is the car. I cut it in half, and now I don’t remember the year, make, or model, but it was quite rare and collectible. And it’s shiny and red!
