4×4″ acrylic on paper

This one just cracks me up. Initially, I began arranging dried blobs of acrylic (from the palette paper) to collage on the paper in a non-objective way—just arranging forms and colors randomly. But then, in the middle of that, appeared unmistakably a red alien/grinch sort of character on a blue saucer sledding downhill (on purple snow, of course). So, why not go with that, right? I added some thick white “snow” on top of the purple/blue blobs, then painted the lighter blue color in the background. Just another example of the weird things that happen in the creative process.
