One day I was experimenting with drawing flowers to enhance my drawing skills and discovered I really liked this particular piece of that drawing session. So, I tore it out from all the rest and saved it to use in future collage work. Not too long after that, I was inspired to create this collage: Red Affection.

This is a mixed media (pre-encaustic) collage:
All papers painted by the artist. I used bleach to paint my designs on black linen paper; then added Shiva oil paintstixs to provide color and detail; then tore the paper and added it to a watercolor background painting I did – mounted the entire collage to Masonite.

The final piece was encased in beeswax and slightly embellished with pigmented wax. It sold before I could scan and upload that version.
