Proverbs

The Book of Proverbs is an ideal source for the type of semi-surrealist art that I do since each chapter juxtaposes a variety of diverse images. Back in 1999, I did a series of 31 small (5″ x 7″) collages on canvas board–one for each chapter of Proverbs. A few of these are shown below. 

Turn to the appropriate chapter of Proverbs and see if you can identify the literary source for each image.

The somewhat hazy appearance of these pieces is due to the fact that the final finish was created with several thin layers of Elmer’s Glue.
