"Do you have themes for your collages," Darvin asked me. "No," I said. Well, at least I generally don't start with a theme--those have been my worst collages, actually. My best ones are a series of accidents and ways that things seem to fit together on a canvas. In this case, I did the background and then when I placed the woman on the page, she seemed to be leaning on the lighter area of the collage. The object she appears to be looking at, the piece of paper that says "Her Unborn Child," is a scrap I had lying around from a previous collage. It seemed to pull things together and leave some ambiguity here that I like.
