Painting, for me, is like putting together a puzzle with no edges and no image on the box. As I glue bits of decorative paper to the surface, I outline and enhance them with bright colors of acrylic paint, sometimes losing the collage altogether. Whether or not the paper remains visible, the texture helps to shape the next layers of paint and paper. I have come to crave these textures in my finished pieces.
