First Art of the New Year 2020
Every year, my friend and fellow artist LFIRE sends me several of her original collages with explicit instructions for me to cut them up and make new art out of them.

12" x 9" The background collage is LFIRE's original. The two flowers were cut out of another LFIRE collage, hand embroidered around the edges, and added on.
I liked the original LFIRE collage so much the only thing done to alter it was adding hand embroidery around the edges of the shapes, and then adding on the dried flower petals.
A bit of detail to see the dried flower/embroidery
This last LFIRE collage I call "ANCESTOR" as I had a visceral reaction when first viewing the face in the middle. I added on some elements to the original LFIRE collage: two metal keys, two metal brads, four wooden pegs, a large black button, and a chain around the figure of the ancestor that travels down to the "wheel" at the bottom of the collage. My Jewish ancestors came primarily from Eastern Europe; the chain and heavy wheel represent confinement, anti-Semitism, and the weight of tradition.
