Design and Texture: This series is taking on a feeling of ancient finds, textures from the passing of time. Layering collage pieces which I've designed and made, still beginning with the Grid, is endlessly fascinating.

Values and Edges: Even with collage, you need to focus on values and edges. This often means that in the middle of a composition, I need to go back to the drawing board and re-make a paper. Generally, I am painting tissue paper. Slowly I'm accumulating papers in a number of values and saturations.

How to start a collage: When our class asked Carrie Burns Brown how she begins a collage, she responded wryly: " There is no way to begin a collage. You just start gluing things down." This may be sage advice about starting any painting. I find sometimes it is not until the hand begins to move that the ideas begin to come!
