Painted Paper Collage


"Rose - Hyacinth - and Chickadee" Mary Maki Rae 2017(c)
**********************************************
Sometimes to get started again - I take out some of my "experimental" Painted papers and small pieces of canvas - Cut & paste them into simple shapes - And then go from there - painting in details as I think of them. . . .

I find the Earthy Stripes composed with the Lighter tones 
of the Flowers a pleasing Balance.
