42 x 28 inches, mixed media on canvas

This is a new piece I did last week. It’s less abstract obviously, but I like it. I thought a lot about places I traveled to in India and dreams I’ve had. It’s much different than after the first day I worked on it. It seemed too controlled so I covered up most of the initial drawings with collage and paint, alternating between the two. It feels so free to work this way and it builds up the surface allowing interesting things to happen. And I felt like the image seemed to appear more organically.
