O.K., these colors always show up way too neutral when I post them up here, and it drives me berzerk. So try to imagine them much brighter and more luminous!
Today, after a lot of staring, fussing, adding bits and dismantling other bits, I realized that I've been forcing this little collage much too hard. I was clinging so tightly to the birdwoman idea, that I closed myself to other possibilities. But no more! A couple of little accidents led me to the current image, where this mysterious, ghosty girl whizzes through the pumpkin patch. I'm going to add one more critter tomorrow, and then it's done! This tiny painting has taken about a thousand years, but I really like it.
