January inspiration

I recently ran across the amazing collage artist Rex Ray and his colorful works.  His use of shape and painted textures were especially inspiring to me.  If you have a moment, definitely google him and take a look at his extensive portfolio.  This particular piece seemed perfect for blog hop inspiration.  With a bold, unique color scheme and a unique arrangement of basic shapes, there is a lot you can take away from this!  Substitute other images or shapes for the ovals and rounded squares.  Use your own interpretation of the colors to create a masterpiece!
