I start another cruciform collage today, taking to heart Jane Davies' encouragement to try a few small studies and then something larger. I'm not doing huge, but I'm working on paper four times larger than last time.

For now, different elements. Interactions. Something new, and something else, and something else.
Iterations thus far:
