New Collage by me…….. In Honor of the Antiques Roadshow….

I don’t keep with the Kardashians and don’t watch any weekly shows other than the Antiques Roadshow and Modern Family. It is so much pleasure to watch someone like Leigh or Leslie Keno talk about something you might think of as boring, they make it fascinating. I remember seeing Mr. Keno talk about an old sugar chest. It used to be kept under lock and key. Its very interesting to see how he comes up with dates and locations to where furniture was made. I wanted to make some furniture of my own in honor of the great work they do on the Antiques Roadshow.

I always shoot pictures of my collage work in the light and dark as the paper I use in some parts is highly reflective in some places. The chair shimmers best in low darkness, due to the reflective properties of the paper.

In addition, if you watch the Roadshow I hope you have seen the episode on the hit television series “Frasier.” It is hilarious as Martin the dad owns a bear clock that came from the Romanoff Family. The Crane family thinks they are now blue bloods.

Since I watch business news channels most of the time such as CNBC, and the Keno Brothers appeared on this channel in a new series titled “Buried Treasure.” The brothers visit old and abandoned houses. The episode I saw the brothers went to a house where the owner had passed away. The brother wanted someone to come in, sell the good stuff  and give it to his children.

I like to think of the collectors house as being a form of living art. I wanted this collector to live in a old mansion, but with modern looking accessories, like the rug. This collector is in their 50’s and enjoys the art deco period the most. A favorite artist of this collector is Erte.
