All the News..., Collage and Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 6.5"x6.5", NFS
30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - Day 28
The idea for today's painting started with the quote that appears on the New York Times' masthead, "All the news that's fit to print." I tore out a bunch of bits of print from my local newspaper and glued them on with gel gloss medium. Once that was dry, I started adding paint. I don't think this painting is quite as strong as yesterday's, but it has an interesting rhythm and pop. I'm enjoying this exploration of collage and abstraction, and the jumping off points are a hoot. I see a word or quote and I'm off - what fun!
I am a painter living in Vermont. I've been painting for about 20 years learning as I go along. In the last couple of years I've been learning a bunch of new painting techniques and experimenting with new subject matter.
