AND the series continues. This is the fourth in the series of collages. Again mixed media but primarily acrylic or other water based paints or water soluble crayon. This little birdie again in 23 carat gold on copper.

I like the vertical format and the round planetary shape that indicates the 'sky' area. Looking at this collage you can see my design sense that contributes to a painting like yesterday's "WHADDA..." That painting has crisp starts and stops of painted pattern.

Someone asked if I listened to the Goldberg Variations whilst working on these. I didn't. By coincidence, I learned yesterday that Jerome Robbins did an entire ballet based on Bach's score.
