School Of Beauty Culture

A couple of months ago, I went to an estate sale close to my house. In an upstairs bedroom, I found a box of old Kodak B&W photo paper labeled 'do not open'. Knowing that the paper wouldn't be good, I opened the box to find about a dozen 8 X 10 B&W prints. The people running the sale told me they were their sister's photographs from a photo class, and sold me the box for $5. The photos are mostly somewhat mundane urban scenes, but printed well. I knew I'd be making collages from them.
I cut the image from an old nursing textbook, and thought it looked great on this photo. It sat unfinished in my studio for a few weeks while I looked for more things to collage with it, before I realized that it was complete as is and didn't need anything else.

I made this collage a few weeks ago. Haven't done much collage recently, the start of the new semester (I'm taking a class as well as teaching) is keeping me both busy and exhausted. Just started a couple today, however, that I hope to finish tomorrow.
