The black lines in my collages represent figures, standing in a landscape.
Some of then wear hats, some not. I've made some cutouts of them.

The drawing challenge of this week is Hat /Cap.The theme brouht me

And there's also another song from Paul Young: "Wherever I lay my hat ".
It's here

"I saw a crow building a nest. I was watching him very carefully, I was a kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And you know what they do when become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable place to be? They build a decoy nest. It's just for you" - Tom Waits

       "Water is fluid, soft and yielding. But water will wear
               away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.

                   As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft,
        and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard.

collage and décollage, strips of different kinds of torn paper,
 acrylic brilliant blue, each part 12,5 x 12,5 cm.

    This is another paradox: what is soft is strong". Lao - Tzu.
