this week i started a collage series at a workshop
held by kathy leader. the prompts were to first use
three colors of acrylic paint, then to one, add collage,
to another, use a complimentary color and the third,
do your choice. here are my three.
this is how the center piece looks after i worked it.
i can't wait to incorporate the other two pieces
so that all three the piece can be hung together.
(the color on this single piece is more accurate)
i admire picasso's tenacity to work the same piece
over and over again until he liked it. the norton
simon museum in pasadena has a series of his
lithographs that shows this process so on a
clear day, i visited. i must say that this is one of
my favorite museums. not only is it beautiful
but it is just the right size for a visit and i love the
impressionist selection. this time, though, i only
had enough time to see the picasso exhibit.
here are a few picture. i will post more in the future.
i am inspired by van gogh.
and could not miss this special exhibit of
his bedroom borrowed from the chicago institute of art.
oh, the colors. i wish you could see the vibrancy !
i would love to hear who inspires you!!
i am posting today with paint party friday,
a weekly online community of artists
hosted by eva and kristen.
