A few springs ago, I attended a collage presentation by artist Emmy Murawski at a meeting of Le Petit Art Guild. Her daughter’s interest in scrapping encouraged Emmy to experiment with collage. Her collage work involved the mixing of objects with collage and painting media. It was her presentation that was the inspiration for this painting.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

To begin my painting, I chose colors from her palette. I then used dots to imply torn pieces of paper arranged like a frame. When I finished I felt that I had taken a step away from a mandala pattern. This series is a reaction to the Alpha Series.
