Mixed Media on paper mounted on 8x8 stretched canvas.
[washi, ink, watercolour, acrylic]

The washi/ rice paper collages are easy to stick with as the process itself and the unpredictability of how the surface interacts with the paints keeps it challenging. I am finding it a different kind of challenge to work on the squares... I just love how squares look, their edges and solidity-- but they are a real struggle to make my own.... I keep getting close to finished, then realize it reminds me of someone else's way of doing squares.. maybe it's something I have to go through to understand how to develop squares that feel like they are mine. I have a few in progress but nothing that is singing to me yet.
