Paper Painting

Paper Tree Line

Playing with collage and assemblage.
Simple shapes as strips of paper and torn paper.
Layered on to create the landscape.
Still in need of contrast. Not quite right.
BUT...liking the use of my own painted paper.
And the fun of playing with tones on tone....
More to come.

Distant Light

Red Trees / Blue Hills

Foggy Morning

Some recent paintings from the new impression focus.
 Again with big brushes and some pretty simple color combos.
These were done in a group and have some surface
texture. layers of color in some and not
so much color in the others

Cute as a Button

BeBe Girl in Paper

An assemblage on paper using newsprint
 painted with acrylic paint and then torn into shapes and fit around the
blue printed outline.
Her eyes and nose are small peices of painted newspaper.

Here she is with a little more of the newsprint detail showing.
I cut the papers in squares and rectangles to fit around her
but am thinking about torn paper to fit into the spaces

The work table when I'm working on assemblage and collage.
 Lots of papers and tones to choose from.
 Lots of added paint detail to create texture.

How I started
Using a left over foam meat tray as the print block. Easy
to cut with an x-acto knife and then glued the
foam cutout onto card stock for stability.
Easy to ink up with a foam roller and acrylic paint.
