Olive Took To Flying Like A Bat Out of Hell

This is a small – 7 " x 5" – collage created for Cincinnati's ArtWorks annual Secret Artworks auction. It combines vintage images from a circus poster and children's book with antique text, recycled greeting cards and a recycled illustration from a publisher's book proof. Watercolor and marker were used to pump up the colors on the dress, and all the cut paper edges are lined with ink. I wish I could say more about where the idea came from – but it just popped into my head once I saw her.
