. . . made more collages
while waiting for paint to dry on my big piece. The one I thought was done yesterday. . . I added some more detail and I have an idea about adding just one more thing, a subtle little detail. So as I waited, I made a couple of little pieces on foam core. In this one, it may be pretty obvious that I used a secret ingredient. . . yes, that's painters' tape on the right, tape that I used to leave a margin around my big pieces. I try to reuse them until they don't stick any more, so many times the pieces are nice and crusty and have several layers of paint on them.
On this piece, the tape is on the bottom, but the blue shows through as the greenish specks, because I placed a transparent piece of golden yellow tissue over the top of the whole thing. Then I started to clean up the studio and picked up this sheet of rub-ons that I accidentally laid on top of the first collage, and the little "3" stuck tight, so I left it there. Then I thought I 'd also add a rub-on to the bottom one. . . and I just liked the saying. There you have it: junk art. Just fun and experimental and it all counts to the 10,000 hours needed to mastery of my art.
