Yes you are right I couldn't stop doing collage just yet. These two [ages had been gessoed and I loved the green scraps on my desk against the black background. So out came the gel medium again.
The woman in the pic is someone I met when I did the Thread Project. She gave me embroidery thread that her mother bought in the 1930's. I thought that was pretty awesome. To learn more about the Thread Project click on the weaving tab at the top of the page.
I love taking small micro shots of collages. I may print this out and use it in another collage.
This is a face I created late one night. The background is a wash of inktense blocks and the face is made using Sennelier oil pastels.
