Remember these? Well, I’ve got some new collage paintings in the works! After looking over my “Ideas Notebook” I found an idea I wanted to pursue. Then after a bunch of research, I decided to do something else. Then after the first painting, well, I changed again. Yep, it happens. Finally deciding on a topic, and, again working with trashy bits, I wanted to focus on subjects of the day. Signs-of-the-Times one could call ’em. More to come on this next time.
So, the first collage painting was a warm up. You can see, the canvas in the last shot has a bit of a bend – at the lower left of the canvas. So I decide to use it as a warm-up to the series. I liked a lot of the textures and shapes going on – so I will continue exploring these throughout the series. Below are some pictures of the procedure. Most are the beginning and the end. Next time I will take more from the middle of the process – ya get so wrapped up in the work, I didn’t even remember to bring out the camera.
In the first images you’ll see collage and texture materials added: some old ratty tissue paper from the holidays, tea bag papers, a receipt found in my front yard, and some torn up maps that would have wound up in the recycle bin. Fun.
More to come – thanks for visiting!
