Over the last six months or so, I have become increasingly drawn to the beauty of flowers as collage elements. I'm not sure from where that is coming except for the fact that I have stumbled on some beautiful floral elements in my stack of magazines lately. And of course, outer space is a favorite of mine (and many other collagists). I was able to spend some time in my studio again last night (REALLY looking forward to the semester's end when I will have even more time!) and played around with a couple sketches and variations that I thought I would share. Nothing is "put down" yet, but I am really finding these sketches appealing.
