My first efforts of the New Year are starting to emerge!
Here's a piece I finished yesterday (acrylic on canvas, 30 by 30 inches):
I also made this painting at the same time. I'm not as happy with it, and yet it has something going on that intrigues me ...
When I make a painting, I draw lines on the canvas with paint extruded through plastic bottles, then lay down a sheet of paper and roll over it with a brayer, so that the lines of wet paint spread out. This leaves me with, not only my canvas, but also a white sheet of paper covered with white lines, the perfect surface on which to play with color! I had collected a pile of these pages, so last night I decided to try painting on them, and this is what resulted. Each one is acrylic on paper, 30" H x 22" W.
2011 is off to a rockin' start!
