China Wok Collage

11" x 15" Collage



Last night, I put black gesso on this 1/4 sheet of watercolor paper. I knew I wanted to collage on it, but all day today I just kept looking at it and going away. I could not get inspired!





So, I watched more videos, and read more books, mainly Jane Davies' Collage Journey, and Sharon DiGiulio's Collage Therapy. I tell ya, it was the "Blank Page Syndrome" all day long! FINALLY, about an hour ago, I just went in and started! And, finished!



It started out as one thing, and ended as another! Per Jane Davies, I was going to make an all-over collage, then either cut it up into bookmarks, or find cool "little paintings" to then make into bigger ones. But when I got started, I discovered that this is an "all about me" collage. And, believe it or not -- I like it!
