Beyond Self Interest: Small Mixed Media Collage


Another busy week! But I did squeeze in some time to work on some small mixed media collages. This one is collage and watercolor. I'm quite new to collage and love integrating text, patterns & textures with paint. It appeals to my love of a process-oriented approach as well, letting the composition unfold and surprise me along the way. The title jumped out at me from the text -- creating a gentle reminder.

Here's a link to another small collage I did this week, in case you're interested.

p.s. Thanks for visiting PPF friends! I hope there is enough painting here to qualify. :)

  4. This is beautiful. I love the way the feather on the left feels so perfectly part of the composition. Your collages breathe...that's so rare. I am bone weary of collages that look like the floor of a 13 year old girl's closet.
