Calendar, Acrylic and Collage on Watercolor Paper, 6.5"x6.5", NFS
30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge - Day 26
Something totally different today. This is a collage. I used bits of newspaper for the some of the words and numbers. I added the black lines to form the grid we are all familiar with when we think of calendars. Then splattering and areas of color, then more lines on top of that. Lots of fun. I can see where more time to think through the elements would result in a stronger composition, but I also like the spontaneity and randomness that results from not over-thinking things.
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.
