Blue, With A Moon

Not quite the same as a blue moon. An initial layer of this collage was giant upright shoes, ripped from a catalog. I have no idea why they grabbed me, but they made me think of standing stones. I had a used color catcher that I had almost thrown out, because it was kind of boring. Turns out it was perfect for creating standing stones.

I pulled the word "confidence" out of a pile of clippings, which brought a tiger image to mind. After all, what creature could be more confident and strong than a tiger? My tiger is sketched on tea bag paper with  pastels,  Now that I look at him again, he looks a little worried. Maybe he needs to draw some strength and confidence from the stones?

I love the colours and design! The tiger is adorable (I think tigers have a right to look worried you know, given how rare they are...)
