"If you really want to fly, you need to 
let go of the things that weigh you down."

This collage started with images borrowed from two of my original paintings; the girls face and a shirt borrowed from "Frida"….a page from my journal of famous woman.  I hoped to challenge myself by using materials from sources other than magazines and collage sheets by others….and did I say that I wanted to challenge myself?  This was definitely a challenge!  I was not inspired in any way by the grouping of collage pieces but as I added paint and Prismacolor pencil, it began to reveal its character.

This collage taught me that you can change the color of practically anything to enhance its presence and to balance the composition.

I hope that this inspires you to try using some of your art work in your collage pieces.

Until next time…
