Rust and Old Lace

"Rust and Old Lace"
mixed media collage on paper

I made a lot of papers last summer using rusted objects to create a surface or to use as collage  elements.
I am finding that I love the use of red with the rust.
I have used really deep red, almost maroon with the rust, or as in this piece a red that is rather pink.
There is a push and pull of materials with the lace against the rust.

I don't think this is the final version of this work.
I am considering different ways to mount or display the piece.

I am working primarily small so I can work back and forth between different pieces.
Sometimes that offers some breathing room for making decisions.
But I am working up to some larger ideas.
I'm still in my in-the-house pop up studio which also contributes to the size restrictions.

Maybe I am playing it safe.
But I am working daily.
That creates a rhythm and a cadence important to my artistic life.
