Hippo Collage Paintings

I am finally able to get back into the studio to finish up some canvasses I started earlier this year. I made these backgrounds without really knowing what I would put on them, but then I remembered that everything is better with a hippo on it!

I make these with acrylic paint on a stretched canvas with old French dictionary paper cut outs for the hippo shapes. I color the dictionary pages with colored pencil, acrylic paint, charcoal pencils, or alcohol ink.
