I’ve started a new project with magazine paper, pencil and acrylic paint. It’s hands on messy fun and suits my style perfectly. I start with a 12″ x 12″ canvas board and cover it with a collage of analogous images that I think of as “what lies beneath.” I take that color scheme and paint over it with a color from the same family creating an abstract background. Keeping with the analogous from the base layer, I use the magazine paper to create these playful images. My current plan is to mount a collection so that they become part of a much larger piece. I have a story that I wrote that’s my inspiration for putting them all together. When I’m ready I’ll include with the piece.
