Deep Blue... Mixed Media Collage


Deep Blue
Jo Reimer
9" x 12"
mixed media collage
This first completed collage of the week came about because I happened to put the photo of the ocean down on top of the painted paper. Composing the elements on a panel that I had just prepared with gesso over a failed effort led me to that sweet spot of knowing when it was just right.

Perhaps this makes the case for working with compost on a messy table.
