Here’s a wonderful example of why I love collage. I just painted paper, never thinking about what it could be. Then as ideas pop in my head I go through a stack of collage paper and begin cutting. Works every time!
Maybe that’s the best advice I’ve learned as an artist.
Fall in love with the process and let your eyes do the work.
As for the inspiration behind this piece, I was walking along in doubt and a yellow butterfly fluttered by. The way that butterflies flutter from flower to flower, so free. That is what I truly strive to be.
