Optical Illusions

Justin and I drove north from Baltimore city for a good thirty minutes and took an exit called "Mt Carmel" and this is the site we ended up at. A harvested crop field. It was strange I've never explored one in the fall time. I wanted to capture the energy of the place at that moment. The orchestra of crickets at peace, warning calls of crows, buzzards circling. The thing is when I scanned this painting in it didn't look right. I started playing with it and looking in the mirror at it to try and figure out what was making it not feel right. Is this a bad thing that it needs to be tilted? I'm no painting major. I've always struggled with the restriction of a rectangle sheet of paper or canvas. I'm more of an organic, circles, spirals kind of person.

I always do these little collages
