My face studies are focusing on sadness and happiness. Abstract background is made with poured, smeared and splattered paint. The ground is interesting to view due to it's ability to evoke images of landscapes, figures, faces, etc. I've re-arranged abstract landscape parts as well as human heads from different paintings. There is a more dramatic charge to these visual elements in collages.
