3.5×5.5″ collage on matboard

I used the back of a matboard I had scraped paint on (unsuccessfully) for this collage. The collage material consists of cut-up paint chips from several of our interior wall painting projects over the years. I just cleaned out a drawer this past weekend and was going to recycle or throw away a lot of stuff like this, but then I thought why not use it for collage material?! And so I did. Because usually I keep this kind of thing and it stays in my studio for years. No more! (Well, it will probably continue to happen, but I’m going to try to work through some of it this fall….)
