So if you care to scroll down and find the first post on this collage you may be able to see the changes I made in it. There has been some collage add and some "tweaks" in the center of interest including just a touch of orange-red spatter and some tiny gold beads.
I always love a surprise at the center of interest when I am looking at non-objective paintings. I am striving for that.
The issue of the composition is what newbies like me struggle with. When I took the Gerald Brommer workshop last April I was delighted to find that this was exactly what he wanted to teach me. I kept all his handouts and my struggles toward that goal.
I think I need to let this piece go now and start on another one. Practice is what I need! (Boro, you may remember) is a Japanese term for a patchwork quilt made of worn cloth. Wabi-sabi is the elegance of imperfection.
