Day 24-Paris Valentine

Paris Valentine
Collage with acrylic, 5 X 5

What could be more romantic than a Valentine with elements of Paris included? Since I had both ideas going I decided to put them together in one collage. One disadvantage of the heat set collage is that it's pretty impossible to correct something if it slips out of place like my black ribbon did. I need to take my time and secure my little pieces that I don't want to slip with a little medium underneath. I seem to get so wrapped up in seeing the finished product that I do things too quickly. Impetuousness plagues more than one art project of mine; it's a lesson to be learned.

I started watercolor painting earnestly in 1991 after I moved to Florida. My husband and I are retired, and we are both artists. We both have works displayed  at the Wildchild Gallery in Matlacha Florida.
