These three collages were made from an older collage that I deemed unsuccessful.
As I cut the older piece into the 5x8" pieces I am using for my "almost daily collages" I realized that there was another older work on the back of this piece as well.
So now I am reworking this piece of paper for a third time!
What I had to work with after I cut the old collage into the 5x8" rectangles was a rich dark brown painted background with some strong black circular shapes.
The apple shapes came from a paper I found in my stash of possible collage papers. Also incorporated are bits of rusted papers, an eco printed paper in the the Dec. 7th collage, and in the bottom piece a section of silk screened fabric.
I had so much fun with these and they seemed to take on a life of their own.
I liked the way the oil crayons responded to the dark brown acrylic paint layer.
I enjoyed incorporating the fragments of the black circles that remained after I adhered the apple collage elements.
The marks on the deconstructed silk screen fabric found their way from the
fabric into the fruit.
Loving this color palette!
I just put these pieces on my website.
And I am now selling my artwork directly from my website.
These 3 pieces would make a wonderful grouping matted, framed and hung together in a
small intimate space.
They are $15 each and you can find them in the Mixed Media Gallery under
Until January 20, 2018 I am offering 10% off any work on my site and free shipping!
I hope you will take a look at my newly reorganized website.
