A Tribute to Joseph Cornell

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Thanks to everyone who so warmly welcomed me back to our art blogging community!  It's good to feel love!

In September, Hollie from Holliewood Studios released a kit paying homage to Joseph Cornell and his famous 'boxes' or assemblage. 

 Joseph Cornell

 I've long been a fan of his quirky and magical collections of disparate objects and Hollie obviously is too.  The images she gathered together have endless possibilities.  

Anyone who enjoys creating digital art would not want to miss this kit titled "Bird Boxes".

Your boxes are fantastic, Trudi - I´ve been sneaking around this kit, but you´ve almost convinced me that I need it.

Trudi, these pieces are touched with a touch and tribute to Joseph C., yet your style and creativity are very evident!!! So good to have you back and sharing your art.

I finally dusted the cobwebs away and did my first post in ages earlier this week. Now that I've made the "commitment", I'll have to spend more time making art!!! :) It's a "good thing". Creativity + Commitment = Satisfaction!!! Sending love, Terri ♥

Now this kit looks very appealing and your digitals even more so! May have to pick this one up.

I was totally smitten when I got to see a J Cornell exhibit in Wash DC a few years ago and was lucky enough to visit several times...they let you see what his studio looked like with his labeled cigar boxes and more

Your digital collages are fantastic dear Trudi...you continue to amaze with your collage talents!
