I haven’t done too much collage work in the past few years while I’ve been doing so much painting. But I have felt the urge for a little mixed media work recently. I’ve done some postcards, ATC’s, and these three pieces in the last couple of months. I’ll show the postcards and ATC’s later on.
These three are done on canvas board, 8″x10″ size.
Really, I meant to do some paintings when I started out. So I put things down on the canvases – making shapes and colors that were pleasing to me, but just didn’t look like going anywhere as paintings. I decided to head for the collage idea and got out magazines and some painted people figures I had done some time ago. Then I mixed things around. I stenciled around a couple of the figures and glued others into the environments that were emerging.
I know this sounds kind of vague, but I was just going along to see what might happen. And here’s what ended up!
