I have collaging on my brain these days as I decided to re-make a canvas. I had painted it, but it just didn't click with me, even though I "lived with it" for several months...9 months to be exact. Artists have discussions about re-doing their work, I am one that has no problem with that.
The 2 parts I loved and knew I wouldn't change were the owl and the eyes peeping out of the hole in the tree. I really liked the papered owl and decided I needed to emphasize that more.
So I begin collaging the entire canvas...
Here is a side by side comparison...personally I really like how it turned out, what do you think? Would you have kept it like it was originally or do you think it was worth the makeover?
And every collage doesn't have to be this complicated, I did a I created a tongue in cheek Garden Hours art journal page today to express how scattered I feel right now over on the Helmar DT blog today. Check it out, whooooo knows, you might want to do something like this too!
