Mini 12

I can't believe that this is mini 12, and I'm 3 months in, or 1/4 of the way through, the "Power in Precision" project. Mini 12 is mixed media with digital collage. I enjoy digital collage - it's a different sort of work than that which goes into a painting. I'm testing some ideas with this piece for a larger scale work I'm still thinking through. It may take me a few more collages to get the ideas worked out, but I feel I'm headed in the right direction. The theme for the collage and the piece I'm considering is "Apiphobia" (the fear of bees). The bees in this piece are metallic ink and the ground is stained Japanese paper with gold accents.
