This collage is one of three I made earlier this summer to submit to a "call for green" for a paper arts magazine. But being the procrastinator that I am (and okay, maybe I'm a bit "chicken" too?)... anyway, I managed to leave the collages sitting on my desk, until one day this week I realized the submission deadline had passed.
Though I love all things green in nature, it's not a color I'd focused on often in my artwork before, but the inclusion of the black and ivory elements made it easier for me. The number border is becoming a favorite element in my recent collages too.
