8.5×5.5″ acrylic, collage

I used a combination of scraping and knifing acrylic paint on this watercolor paper. For the collaged part, I used the outline of a heart cut out from a long-ago Valentines’ craft project with a niece (melting crayon shavings between wax paper with an iron). The collaging was a late addition. It just felt like it needed something more. After adding it, I kept putting down additional paint lines.

After I titled this, all I could think of was the Rolling Stones song of the same name. It doesn’t really fit what I was thinking/feeling for this work, but the title word came before the music memory arrived, so I’m not surprised.
