Drawing flowers can be mesmerizing for me because I find myself getting pleasantly lost in the inter-winding lines and curves. Incorporating the collage element was a bonus. It added a new element in the enjoyment of exploration. There was a freedom in not having to make it look perfect, so to speak. I hope to bring that feeling into as many drawings or paintings I produce.
