Red Branch (mixed-media collage)
Well, I've made a few paintings recently which is big for me. It's been over six years and I'm pretty rusty. I've never done mixed-media before, so I decided to try it out. The first one I did was a sort of branch with red blooms on it against a blue background. I collaged in some text bits to add interest. I'm not thrilled with it at all since it wasn't the look I was going for, BUT the point of it is that I DID it and that's what matters. I know I'll improve with a lot of practice and time. I'm just proud I decided to take the risk and stop THINKING about it.
