I heart Cash.
I love Johnny Cash.
Ask anyone who's ever ridden in a car with me: nine times out of ten, I've got Cash playing. Over and over. And over. I never get tired of hearing his voice and that distinctive sound. I remember listening to him with my Grandpa sometimes, either via the car radio or the eight-track player he happened to have in one of his cars. He got a big kick out of hearing "A Boy Named Sue."
So this collage is a little tribute to him. The image in the middle came out of a magnet I bought...somewhere...quite a few years ago. The magnet broke. And of course I couldn't throw it away. Yesterday morning I looked at it and suddenly remembered several sheets of old sheet music I had in my stash. So I tore up a bit of it and started to glue. Then I remembered the guitar paper and dug through my big basket to see if I had any left. Luckily I did, and I snipped out a lone guitar, and thought it looked pretty good. I flipped open one of my giant dictionaries and found the definition of "legend" and stuck that on there too. I decided to include the word "forever" rather than "legend". I added a Hambly transparency I've had for quite a while and this little collage (6 x 6) came together. I like how it turned out.
