Visit me here:

....afternoon, at Rice Lake. Acrylic collage painting on heavy archival paper 11 x 15 inches, image size 9.5 x 12 inches.

...the process here was inversed a bit. Usually, when I use collage, I begin with collage, and then paint on top of the piece. Here, the piece was meant to be a pure painting, but I felt I needed more surprise in the sky, and I needed to do something else to get the character of the sky, so I decided to use collage half way through the painting, even while the sky was partially wet. I like it very much when a real element of surprise enters into the work process, and that happened here.
