'SINGERS' enhanced

I found (in my many layered studio) the antique sheet music I needed to surround the tiny watercolors of singers from previous posts. The paper is fragile and certainly not archival, so I scanned and printed it onto good rag paper. On one of these I lettered appropriate titles (TRIO, FOR THREE VOICES, FOR 3 VOICES, etc.) in nut-brown ink using old crow-quill pens. I like the way the ink bleeds and is still legible. And by now you know my interest in calligraphy and letter forms. The prints of these collages will be enhanced with these titles chosen at random, making each print unique.

A double rag mat will hold the collage away from the frames's glazing.
