Minuet Misstep

"Minuet No. 10 - Sunset Over Humboldt Bay"
Not every Minuet that I've done has turned out wonderful; I love most of them but this is not at the top of my favorites list. I think it is important to show what I think doesn't work as well as the collages I believe to be successful. Just like you can "overwork" a painting, you can overwork a collage and I think that's what happened here. I had a decent idea but got too carried away during the execution. It is far too busy. Note that I did NOT tear this out of my Minuet journal. I made it, hated it, learned from it, and moved on.
