weekly art wednesday: nadia the château cat, ink and collage

Here’s to our sweet little Château mascot, Nadia. Well, I don’t think the mice, birds, and lizards find her too sweet. And I guess neither do I when she brings those little gifts inside the house to be found in our closet, behind curtains, under our bed…
The paper for the collage is from an old French literature textbook, and as chance would have it I came across a story on cats to use for this piece. There are so many pages in this book that I’m sure I’ll never miss this one…but it still does feel strange to pull pages out of a book!

  1. I have done my fair share of pulling apart books for art and while I love the texture and layering of text into a canvas, it still feels a bit wrong to dismantle someone's work…It's so fun to see the things that inspire you around the Chateau!
