Trashcan Collage

The other day I lost a rather large check. In desperation, after looking everywhere else, I emptied out the trashcan. There was nothing but gross stuff in my kitchen garbage can, but my studio can yielded treasures.

Yes, I found the check, tucked into an envelope which I had thought empty, and....of course....this was wonderful. But, I also found little colorful bits of "this and that" that I salvaged and glued into this little impromptu collage. Now, wouldn't this be fun to do on a regular basis? I challenge you to do some trashcan collage, and if you send me scans, I will post yours. Let's play! No fair using supplies on your table, except maybe a dab of paint. Don't spend more than 10 minutes at the very most on this!

There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self. (Hindu Proverb)
