That First Flush of Pink Buds

The last of my short series of seven paper mosaic collages was finished last night. The painting in the center was originally done in the spring and was inspired by the first flush of budding leaves that look pink against the pearly grey trunks of trees. I kept the pink and grey palette consistent through a mosaic border with the oval pink shapes embedded among grey textured papers. There were no prints of ancient words in this piece, as there were in the others. The shapes seemed to speak for themselves.
