Collage Papers Made Today


These are for the two 16"x20" paintings I sanded today. They are blue-green and red-orange, and I am adding yellow orange and magenta collage shapes to the next layer.

A mystery was solved when I was sanding these canvases, which I had pinned up on the studio wall. The sanding seemed to create little circular marks and I was not sure what caused them. I thought it was the sander, a mouse sander with little holes in the face of it. But then I tried sanding them on a wood panel on the floor and it was MUCH better.

I ordered some 16x20 wood panels to mount these paintings on. I will not try to wrap the canvas around the edges, I will simply cut it and mount it on the front. Wish me luck!
