Merged Images and Some Paintings: 8

A while back I had an idea (don’t know from where) to choose a couple of photos at random and see if I could combine them into an image. I have been doing these paintings in a large sketchbook (mixed media paper) – it’s 18″ x 24″.

I did this painting in my studio as part of an online class I was taking in late fall, 2021. Here are the photos I used for references. The sofa is like our new one (this is the one in the store); the small tree is in Glenside, PA; the twin house is in Wyncote, PA.

And here is the painting. It is called “Comfortable Neighborhood” and it is 18″ x 24″. Done in November 2021.

Odd Creatures Postcards 2021: Epilogue

Back in June 2021 I made a selection of postcards featuring odd-looking creatures.

I took a piece of light cardboard cut to size from a cereal or cracker box. Then I painted bands of color with acrylic paints. Then, I did some negative space drawing with India ink.

I’ve shown you all of the cards I made in this set. How about a group picture so that you can see the entire array?
