Crashed Computer but a new start...

My computer crashed! I've spent the whole day getting all my programmes back on and I've lost a lot. I had a problem a year ago but managed to pick up a lot of what wasn't backed up through other user accounts (stupidly I was the computer administrator, had only one CA and couldn't access my account). This time I couldn't get past DOS and in the end decided to run the system recovery. I'm too impatient to wait and get help. But it reminds me that I haven't established good backup habits still.

I think in one way it's not a bad thing to have an "empty" computer and start again with the new year.

So, no art at all - except for thinking about ideas! I've gone through my collage and believe I've enough to send away so I can move onto other media. For a few minutes I thought I couldn't part with one or two, but then reminded myself that I'd done them to send away, and that its good to move on. I think the process has given me some ideas for future works and I'm already taking one of them into paint.

Sorry to hear about the computer crash, but good you are taking it in stride :)
Congrats on finishing all the collages - and on managing to part with them :). Love that you are going to take some of them into other work - these pieces you've shared are all so strong and beautiful, very soulful creations. :)

bugger. poor you.
I love your collages... love love them. I shouldn't really come and look at them in my current sad state because you are just so GOOD at them, and my own efforts are fairly pedestrian...
I like the lucky bear....
I love those collages. :-)
