A new collage

When I have been away from painting for a while and need something to get me back "in the groove", making a small abstract painted collage is always a good start for me. It serves well for a warm-up or loosening up activity. And I always enjoy making them.

The one above is made on a 7.5"x7.5" (19cmx19cm) sheet of cold-pressed 300 lb watercolor paper. Twelve of these smaller sheets can be cut from a regular full sheet of watercolor paper. Painted handmade papers (washi), acrylic paint and medium were used to make the collage. Artists who have taken collage workshops with Gerald Brommer will recognize how I got started making these many years ago.
