Painted collage and actual collage (Chicago Art Institute, Part II)

Still Life (Centrifugal Expansion of Colors) by Gino Severini, 1916
Drawing-Collage by Joan Miro, 1933
These artworks resonated with me and reassured my instincts
for creating collage - especially using old photographs.  
Severini's corner snapshot was a monochromatic painting but Miro 
actually used photos and paper cut-outs to construct his playful piece.

A visit to a great museum usually keeps me inspired for days,,, weeks....

And from this evening's walk....

An océanesque-sky
Six-pack
