Tortured Art: Ax Heart

(third of a series of three)

Collage, guoache, marker, and acrylic on canvas

The interesting(?) thing about this is that I had never originally intended it to be this violent. That's not how I saw it in my head when I first thought of it, and that's still not how I saw it in my head when I was putting the elements together. But after it was together, there was a weird red-from-one-of-the-axes imperfection I wanted to cover up, so I started with the red guoache. Then I really liked how it looked, so I kept going. This is what happened. I think I like how it turned out; not sure how I feel about the violent nature of the whole thing now--especially in relation to the other two in the series.
