Did you read my last post? Here is what came next.
The bottom painting is complete. Time to do something with the top.
Old book pages and loose threads collaged on.
All is overpainted with watery green and bronze fluid acrylics.
Gothic "ruin" windows are added over top.
The area around the windows is darkened for contrast.
Circles are added [the colour & shape inspired by our miniature crab apple tree].
A hand-cut stamp is used to add architectural elements.
White connecting lines are added under the windows.
White connecting lines are gone - replaced with one large, soft line.
The large, soft line is collaged over with hand-stamped and painted paper.
[Made in my last Stamps, Stencils & Collage Papers workshop]
And... here is the final piece: "Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other"
A mixed media painting, 36" x 48". It will JUST fit in the MINI Cooper ;)
Next it goes to Ottawa to be juried for the upcoming OMMA
[Ottawa Mixed Media Artists] Art Exhibit: Proverbs, JAN 2014.
A detail shot, including some of the calligraphy.
I have SO enjoyed my time in the studio, trying a new approach to my work.
Thank you Flora Bowley for your inspiration!
And thank you to all of you out there who told me about Flora and her book.
Have a creative weekend everyone!
