This is from October 2011 when I started the June collage for my Longhaired Dachshund calendar. I can't remember why I did this in the kitchen and not the studio. I know I wanted to lay out the materials I would use and work on the color palette before I started. As you can see, I had forgotten to place Darby's pillow in his spot by the French doors. He is waiting there for me to do so.
