The Assertive Muse

These two collages came about from what I feel was my assertive muse.  I was in the studio sorting the stacks of  Gelli prints I have- Gelli prints are monoprints done with acrylic paint on a Gelli plate- I don't often plug products but this one is wonderful as I can monoprint with out a press with acrylic paint so it is water clean up.  Anyway I use my monoprints often for collage back grounds- sometimes cutting them up- in fact my previous post with the house collages is an example of that.  So I was sorting and I came across two that I was liking a lot and set them aside.  Then I just stopped and started looking for imagery and that's how these two collages came about.  They are around 8 X 10 inches.
