I began my day by working on one of the collages in my Freedom Book.
Then, as I talked about in the video Jon took, I began working on a collage on a piece of muslin that I cut into three pieces each about 18″x18″.
I put a piece of canvas on my studio floor to work on. I like working on the floor. I started my first collage by drawing on the muslin with black marker.
The photo below is how it looks at the end of the day. The last thing I did was some thread drawing with my free-motion sewing machine. I think it’s done, but I’ll look at it again tomorrow and see if it wants anything else.
I have no idea what these collages are about or even my thought process when making them. They seem jam-packed to me like there’s so much going on. It worries me a little that it’s a reflection of what’s going on in my brain.
But I haven’t been able to simplify them. And maybe I don’t need to.

Without overthinking things, it looks as if you are playing with idea of inside versus outside and weaving them together so that they are not opposites. I love that the sun appears indoors and that there is furniture out of doors. It makes me reflect on how our ideas about “home” are changing–how they are expanding or being complicated by what is happening in our larger world. NOW is everywhere at once, or many places, and involves a host of creatures in its keep. Keep playing and thank you for sharing.
Really interesting interpretation Donna. It makes sense what you wrote. You’ve got me thinking, thanks.
