Making something from nothing

One of my favorite things about being an artist is combining previously unrelated things and turning them into an awesome piece of artwork that people want to hang on their walls.

Part of this is because it's fun to rescue things that were doomed for the recycling bin.  Cutting a word from a magazine page and gluing it onto a painted canvas is a way of preserving something intangible from the work of someone else.

Yes, collage art is my favorite.  I like the idea of looking at something that's done (or several somethings) and deciding to destroy it and rebuild something new.

Blogging is like that, a combination of things in a new way to create a new form.  Isn't it awesome that we live in a time where we can reinvent the world so frequently.
