I think the problem was that the composition and colors didn't speak to me. It started out predominantly red and yellow so I introduced the color green in order to provide more interest. I made the heart shape into a martian face but it was too dominant and took away from the main character, the girl with the headdress. The solution was to cover the heart shape with a flower girl collage piece by Teesha Moore and by adding yellow paint to the main character's skin. This created a better balance.

This would have made a good Valentine's Day theme collage but you know how it goes…the painting sometimes takes on a life of it own and BOY…did this one ever!
Until next time…
