I hate to throw anything away. I have a small studio space which is probably a good thing. A bigger space would make it too easy to save every scrap of paper and bit that seems like it could be art.
I added a collage to a small piece of MDF board that would in the studio. I created a collage background with old book pages and magazines. I had intended to create an image of a man's face. As I worked it slowly became my nephew James. It was in a indecisive moment in his life and the expression that emerged seemed to mirror his frustration and uncertainly. The image is done with acrylic paint and pencil.
