Mini Art Journal - A very scary place


As his Grandmother used to say, 
"You don't want to go into your head alone, 
mon petit. It's a very scary place,"

RED BIRD Collage




I was having an "Artist's Block". I thought collage - tearing up paper and glue - would be the therapy I needed to break through. I decided to try a negative space collage. I would cover the canvas with random pieces of paper, then paint the negative space around my subject. 

Tearing and pasting was very therapeutic  and by the end  I was feeling better and more creative. However I learned the hard way that the collage paper should have been all dark colors. As I was painting the negative  space around the tree limbs, I couldn't see my subject.

The only way to fix it was to collage my subject after I painted the negative space. So as it turns out, I simply have a Red  Bird collage.
