I apologize for not taking a picture of just the collage paper on the panel but as you can see it's a harlequin design at the bottom and the top was an off white Japanese paper with some thin black geometric shapes. Sometimes I just have to sit down and paint from my imagination. This image seems to come out a lot in my imagination. I must be drawn to red flowers and yellow-ish (yellow ochre and white that is) background. I still like things that are rather grungy looking so as I progress in my painting-from -life journey maybe this will emerge there too. Right now while I am painting from life it is hard for me to decide how I edit what I see. So for now I am just going to paint what I see while I am waiting for my voice (painting style) to come forth.
