Two Hundred Eighty-Six!

IMG_5601

I never thought I would like the end image but here we are again and I love the image I was supposed to cut up.  In these last two images I seem to mindlessly move across the page and by the end it’s become a crazy collage of imagery and pattern. It’s exciting and rather stress free. I will say I had half painted the birds ages ago, but that’s why I thought it would be a scrap image. I hated the birds originally which was why I gave up and it just sat in my scraps pile for about 2 months. Anyway, enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Five!

 

IMG_5577Full Image

Another night, another painting. This was never intended to be a completed image. I was trying to make something I could cut up for another piece but  as soon as I started working on this I started to really enjoy to format and image that was developing. Guess I’ll try again tonight for something I can destroy. Anyway, some of the elements in this image are items I am working on in a larger piece so it was really helpful to do this image prior to completing the other.

Hopefully this weekend will be productive. I will be back at my favorite seaside home and the forecast is predicting rainy cloudy weather which for those who do not know is my FAVORITE kind of weather. Probably should have moved to Ireland! Enjoy and see you next time!

Two Hundred Eighty-Four!

The most recent addition to my hands collection. I really struggled with this image. I couldn’t seem to figure it out and each night I would photograph it and stare at it over the course of the day trying to see what needed to happen next. The original piece I created I ended up cutting up and layering into this piece. It’s obvious on the top section but the lower half of this image is entirely pasted onto the heavier stock. It was even interesting to see how the two different watercolor papers reacted to the paint absorption. Granted I forgot to make note of which papers I used… FAIL. I’ll pay more attention next time. I love how the fence like structure floats around the page. I think I really want to play with this cut paper idea for a bit maybe in the next piece. Enjoy and see you next time.
