New Collage Paintings
Time to post some Art! Since I moved this past year, houses have been a theme on my mind. I have been playing with all those collage papers, scrapbooking papers, junk mail, monoprints, etc. that I have been hoarding, and used them as the base for a collage. Then I go in with paint, stamps, oil pastels, etc to add more color to the background. Add in more layers of papers to make the focal elements, then back to paint, pencils, etc. I like to work on several at a time, so that while one piece is drying, I can be working on the next piece. These have been so much fun to create. Nice to get back into the studio and get my hands dirty! These pieces are done on 8 x 10 inch stretched canvas or canvas panels. I am finding that the stretched canvas collages are easier to hang, but the panels are more economical.....so there are pros and cons to both.
