I don't see any clowns!

I've been so busy, mostly with work unfortunately, but I have managed to squeeze in some time to paint and glue. I've been working on collages with lots of color layered with gesso and scraps of paper, then layered up again.

I always lean to flatness - does that even make sense? What I mean is that I like my collages to look more three dimensional but in fact be flat.

This I've taken to calling this Arbutus Moon.

I used a similar technique on this piece titled, 'Why do I have a need to do a circus theme piece when I don't even like clowns?!"

It's a bit creepy and swirly and dreamlike, and I don't particularly like it. It had to come out for some reason in all it's jangle and disconnection.

So there you have it... some sort of weird peek into my subconscious - from pretty birds to menacing clowns. Welcome.
