My new obsession with collage art has turned me into somewhat of a Stamp Geek. Not rare stamps, but those that appeal to my sense (I hope it's sense) of what I'm attempting to create from these scraps of paper spread out over my table. I've been collecting paper(s) most of my life, with some (until now) unknown ultimate goal other than the filling of empty shoe boxes. Been gleaning techniques from the various artists for whom I have toiled. Taking notes. Going to art museums. Storing up, and the stores are bursting.
