Story House

 This is a model for a mixed media class project in which each participant makes and embellishes a little house that "tells" or implies a story.  When all the houses are complete, participants trade houses, then interpret the visual clues to tell their version of the imagined story, in their own words.  Creative writing is encouraged and there are no wrong answers.
As my little story house sat on the work table, I continued to work on a small collage with similar colors and images.  A scrap of wood was used as the base.
The end result was two works that seem quite related.  
 In art, as in life, one thing often leads to another.
