I have lost control over the painting! The majority of the plaster work is now covered up with paste paper shapes. One good thing is that the plaster raises the paste paper flowers off of the canvas for more depth. Observing my own work at this stage; I need more contrast, more unification of the flowers and details, too many foreground objects and not enough soft edged fading into the background images. I must take care not to go off of the cute scale, maintain my original objective of a high key color palette and not to get to representational. At the moment the title is "Sugar and Spice".

Plaster Collage:Page 4
I took to retirement like a duck to water! Now I have the time and energy to create art. I like to go on experimental side ventures within the various media, techniqes and styles of painting. At the present I am exploring paste paper mixed media collage. Take a workshop or two and I am off taking a thimble full of knowledge and turning it into a torrent of art work. Who knows what is next but I sure look forward to the learning adventure.
