Alcor is named for a star as are all those in the series of miniatures which I will present here. I make small collages for the pure pleasure of the process. I have a large inventory of collage materials in my studio, some of it in small pieces that are great fun to put together.

Alcor is a mixed media collage painting, measures 4” x 6” and is mounted in an 8” x 10” acid-free mat. It will fit into a standard 8” x 10” frame. It is made of archival materials, mostly acrylic paint and collage elements that I make in my studio. It is signed and dated. Little paintings like this are delightful hung on narrow walls, standing on tables or shelves, or hung in a group of paintings of different sizes.
