Madison Avenue


"Madison Avenue" (9"x5 7/8"x1/4") canvas on panel acrylic collage) is my contribution to Karin Jurick's Different Strokes from Different Folks blog painting challenge. I do not usually do so much linear perspective, (I love those organically shaped trees!) but it was a challenge and I'm glad I did it. I enjoyed using different papers and mixing it with my acrylics. I found it somewhat restrictive and freeing at the same time. I left some lines, and I applied the papers to the two front cabs in a somewhat haphazard"ish" way. I didn't want any other vehicles to come in sharply, so applied the paint very loosely to those in the middleground.

So, here we go again...it looks like we are only 14 away from the next give-away 4x4 painting or collage. You can see the choices on my sidebar; a new one has already been added! As I said yesterday I am also bringing a new item into the mix. They are canvas card holders...painted and stamped...each one will be totally unique...those are coming very soon, so be watching! I have also decided; since I have several who "follow" by blog by e-mail but either haven't been able to figure out how to sign up as a follower if they don't have a blog, or have chosen this method to include their names as followers and therefore will be added in the drawing. SO, if you are in that category, please e-mail me your name and I will add it to the mix! This means we may hit the number 50 even faster than you may see...I will keep you posted!
"Madison Ave. is available for purchase on my WEBSITE.
