Veni, vidi, vici

I had two hours to spend in my studio today and so I got in there and did what needed to be done. I started a new collage on Friday (yes, yes, I have tons of works in progress, I know, but this is for an invitational...). This was what I found coming in today:

First I finished up the background and then I slathered on a layer of Golden Heavy Gel Medium to simulate an encaustic work. I'll be in there on Thursday for the results, but the Heavy Gel--applied here with an old credit card--is supposed to remain a bit opaque. Innnnteresting. Here's an close up on the bottom left of the piece. (See Fermat in the lower left?)

If this is the background, what's going on top?

I found this 5x7 doodle and I am loving the circles and graphite

and it's making me closer to figuring out what to do with this piece:
