From Susanna Lakner (Germany)

Two bigger pieces from one of my favorite artists. The amount of ideas that I've taken from her...well, they're a lot. I just purchased a recently published book of just her collages and I've thumbed through that thing many, many times, always inspired. It was a great treat to find these two items in my mailbox yesterday.
