A Crazy Floral

Crazy Floral by Patrushka 650pix

I had an urge to put my fingers to some collage, as it’s been quite awhile. This time I used only paper which I had painted myself, to ensure that the colors won’t fade as they might with found images from magazines. It was rather fun to return to my old love, am hoping to try some cityscapes with this technique in the future.

Hope-Patrushka-web8

This is a small watercolor inspired by an Emily Dickinson poem.

“Hope” is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops – at all …
