Collage Video

I made this collage painting today, and I recorded a video of the process. I think it needs more, but the video shows my process.

This 6x4" collage is acrylic and paper on watercolor paper. It is titled "Eclipse" because I put the round piece in (which the painting kept asking for), and saw how much it looked like a lunar eclipse.

Dream Boxes

 I really don't know what to do with these shrines, making them amused me, and I love them, though they are not in line with what I usually do, creatively. Except for the one of my mother Peggy, they are 3D representations of my dreams.

If you are interested in seeing my YouTube channel this is a link to my most recent video:

Tiny Book Flip Through 

Pink and Green

This is a 9x12" page from my collage sketchbook. Eventually I will put a video flip through onto YouTube about it, but I have many pages to go to fill it. I call this one Pink and Green, for obvious reasons.

Upcycled Paintings -- More Pattern on Pattern

 These two pieces were very busy, and then I looked at my tiny book of pattern-on-pattern collage and decided I could use them as inspiration. I think they turned out fairly well.

Collage Layer on Square Paintings

I love the square format, and these had lots of visual texture on them. That was simplified when I put a layer of transparent paint on top, and now I added some collage. 12x12", acrylic and paper on wood panels.

Backgrounds changed

On all these paintings, which are 20"H x 16"W, I put a new coat over the background, using a mixture of the main colors used in the collage pieces. I don't know if they are finished or not.
