The chaos of collage composition

Work-in-progress-chaosTook this photo of my current work in progress yesterday. It's hard to tell where the collage begins and all the intriguing bits of paper end. For scale, the wood panel I'm working on is 10 x 10 x 1"... so there are lots of little elements being considered, set aside, ripped further, reconsidered, rearranged, discarded. Everything on the board is already glued down, everything else is just jockeying for position!(Addendum: the finished piece is written up in my blog here.)
