Studio Series: HFX sketchbook collage

HFX collage 1: 519 © Karen Thiessen 2013
During a recent trip to Halifax I made these collages. By chance we stayed in room 519 two years in a row. Once again I gathered free materials from around the city that I cut apart with scissors borrowed from the front desk. On this trip I discovered that weathered park benches yield wonderful rubbings. I also discovered that the benches in the Halifax Public gardens are all new thanks to Hurricane Juan, and new benches don't give good rubbings.
