You can see that I'm tackling the background first. Sometimes I prefer working this way--that way the background really is in the background and I can collage the foreground on top of it. Other times I work on the foreground and background at the same time, just switching back and forth as I put down the pieces of paper.
I'm getting really excited about my upcoming shows this spring/summer. There's just something about the whole process of getting ready that I really enjoy.
