I have never been able to stick with a job unless I was having fun with it.  The same principle applies with my painting.  I am serious about my art work, but I still want to have fun.  Sometimes I just want to scribble, scratch, blob, splatter and color outside the lines, run crayons right through the figure …. so I do.  No rules here.

I worked from a sketch I did earlier in the week (on my lesser known blog).

This painting is one of those collages that I swear I’ll never do again.  It is pieced together from old watercolor painting pieces.  They are cut and pieced together to fit like a puzzle. 

I told you those shoes were ridiculous

 This painting is a collage of watercolor pieces (from old watercolor paintings).  They are cut and pieced together to fit like a puzzle.  It has been two years since I did one of my collages, and every time I start one of them I get one quarter of the way through it and regret my decision.  I love how they turn out, but they are so time consuming and they end up killing my neck because I have to work on them flat.

If you click on the image you will go to a larger version, and even a detail of the painting.
