Next Stage of New Work

Here's a picture of the collage, as it develops:
You can see I've added the black, threading it through the composition.

New Work

As I paint or create collage, the work emerges and has its own ideas. For example, in this recent collage, the nascent, undeveloped idea was the image of a reclining figure.

This is the beginning, rough idea. We'll see how the collage emerges.

Working on Collage

This is one of my latest collage works (in progress). The background paper in the upper part has not been adhered to the canvas with acrylic matte medium yet.
I'm very interested in the figure. In particular, abstract figurative work. I lay down the shapes that feel "right".
The dark/light pattern is important. In this body of work, I always have black threaded through the composition.
