On the second day, the assignment was to do two floral collages by "making flowers without making flowers". LOL! Jerry told us that if he saw a stamen or a pistil he would give us an "F". These were a little harder to do for me, who is used to painting flowers that look like flowers. But I was game. My sister Joan and I had prepared for this workshop by purchasing some washi (oriental rice paper) in several interesting textures. Some had threads or fibers running through them, some had holes or a lacy effect, and one had swirls that reminded me of "Starry Starry Night". These all came in handy for the floral collages.
