Water Soul

The Strathmore workshop I mentioned in the last post has really helped kick me out of the artist's block I have experienced since breaking my shoulder 4 months ago. Now I can handle small pieces again, I am loving creating A4 size pieces, although I am not really following the workshop instructions. LOL I do love Pam's work, but my own style just gets in the way. First pic is how I started the piece with some collage pieces, mainly my own work recycled, but some eyes and mouth cut from a magazine. Second pic shows the finished piece.
