Yes! Good collage should take a long time, I think. I get annoyed when people see it as an "easy" option for people who can't paint, when it's an art form in itself, when done properly. This is awesome work, by the way. Love it Xx
Ha! It's definitely time-consuming to get things positioned right. And the attitude of the final arrangement matters, too. What I like about this piece is how the woman looks to remain hungry despite the feast of butterflies. You've captured something universal here.
