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.

Title: “Crazy Floral”

Size: 12 x 12″

Medium: Collage on birch wood panel (acrylic painted on archival paper), varnished

On a cloud of sound I drift in the night

Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well, you don’t know what we can find
Why don’t you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride…”

And never stops – at all …
