"Three Lemons and a Cherry" acrylic/paper mixed media collage
8"x11 1/2" mixed media on MDF panel with 1 3/4" poplar cradle finished to enhance the painting
Ever curious I HAD to find out if I could work in my new most exciting style with other subject matter, so lemons it was. Again, working with acrylics and my acid free papers (these purchased) and a little molding paste thrown in for good measure...well, I decided to add a bit of texture on the lemons to disguise some of the layers of paper under them, and give a bit of added texture. With the flowers there is so much going on the papers showing through was great...the lemons having such large surface with no other things going on needed a bit of cover so as not to take away from their planes...
I believe now that I have found such joy in working this way a revamp of my website will be in order before long.....! YEA!
I have been busy preparing for a garage sale I've decided to have next Saturday, so my work on my "real work' will be a bit slower...I keep asking myself "ARE YOU CRAZY??"...a big undertaking...But, I have supplies I no longer work in, furniture, things from my teaching days that need to leave the premises...so, onward through this sweaty time...wish me luck!!
HAPPY DAY TO YOU ALL!!
