Vertigo

birdinhand

acrylic and collage on w/c paper, 10 X 11″

sometimes the earth moves

and the sky gets dislodged

a new route opens up and out

creatures large and small

suffer vertigo

discover friends

learn to protect one another

A National Geographic picture, torn into three pieces and glued on somewhat randomly.  (I liked the bird in the hand idea).  The lesson in Monday Muse was to paint out from a picture(s), integrating it/them to the paper surface.  The picture becomes the prompt for what is painted, so there is practice for mixing colors that match the image.  In the picture are also plenty of ideas for content, either somewhat realistic (as I did here) or more abstract. Next time I’ll try that!
