. . . cleaned the studio
just so I could walk through it without tripping over something. In a very literal sense I turned over a new leaf. . . I flipped over the pink 4' x 8' piece of pink insulation that I use to tack down my canvases so now I have a beautiful clean paint space. I organized my papers into neat stacks, and cleaned up the collage area over on the ping pong table. I am in the process of cleaning a bunch of brushes and other tools that I have used to create the painted and stained tissue papers. So supposedly I am ready to begin painting on canvas again. Why do I hesitate? Especially since my art rep called last night and said I would be a featured artist at a show in KCMO at the end of February. I have some work to do. . .
Some regular readers of this blog may know that when I started this blog, my goal was to post every day for a year. So far, I have accomplished that, The year ends February 1. To celebrate, I want to give away one of my collages. Just post a comment between now and January 31, tell me which collage you would like to receive, and I will pick a random winner on February1. Any collage that has appeared on this blog, even if I have listed it on Etsy, is eligible.
The above collage is an experiment in black-and-white, which I think is just so elegant (the color combo, not necessarily the collage.) I would mat these in black with an inner edge of white, and a simple black 11 x 14 frame. I would hang a series of them (odd number) perhaps low, along the top of a chair rail, or maybe staggered, going up a staircase, or maybe turn a long hallway into a gallery, hanging them at eye level.
