Thankfully, WRONG! :D Mid-mod is back in fashion, and it has been for at least the last 5-8 years. Deep down, I know that this trend will also subside, but I hope it stays with us for a good long while. In reality, I don't think it's hit its apex yet, which makes me happy.
In a way, I can thank this trend for my full-time art career - indeed, it was creating mid-mod collages for my friend Pam Kueber at Retro Renovation that allowed me to pursue my art as a career in the first place!
Some of you may remember the post I did last January about my first-ever Retro Renovation collage - well, I still love those mid-mod homes and started a new series this weekend:
I call it "Living on the Grid" and I have plans to create many more of these, in all different colors. :) I got a sewing machine about a month ago and I'm having a BLAST using it with my collages! I'm also a huge fan of that vintage graphic tape, so I made sure I used it here. I wanted to create a collage with clean lines and lots of white space.
I have all sorts of house designs from which to choose, too! There's something so comforting about this house design - whereas the Victorian was very stately and proper, these homes allude to a front yard full of kids, a backyard patio and a TV with rabbit ears. At least, that's what I get out of it. :)
