The Wall

This is another of my newsprint collages.  It took many turns pasting and removing elements. My original conception based loosely on a photo I took of a blooming pink tree with an interesting gate took a different turn as art often does. Don't know if it is finished but am posting while it still sits and I can read and tell if I want to tweak.  The last stage I went over the image with transparent oils, sap green and alizarin crimson to unify the image.
