Art I'm Making: More Collages (June 28, 2015)

The recent Art at the Source Open Studios event afforded me a lot of time to work. I finished several new pieces while hosting visitors to my display area and just before and after the event. Here are two newer pieces. Above is Untitled Collage No. 102 (Santa Rosa), using acrylic on paper, and monoprinted paper elements. This one uses blank areas to anchor the overall composition, small jots of color to keep the eye moving at the same time. The freer, linear element at the center was made by drawing in paint on a glass plate with the back end of a paint brush. June 1, 2015. Acrylic on paper, acrylic monoprint on paper, collage. Image size 11.4 x 11.5cm.

Below is Untitled Collage No. 103 (Santa Rosa), the result of a chance meeting with some of the people at Iota Press, in Sebastopol. Next door to the press is Beekind, where I sometimes buy beekeeping supplies. I noticed the Iota Press sign as I was leaving Beekind. I dropped in and got into a conversation with the man that runs the place and got him to give me some paper discarded in the wastebaskets. One of these (the torn scrap in the center) I've incorporated into this piece. June 5, 2015. Acrylic on paper, acrylic monoprint on paper, found paper (printer's scrap), collage. Image size 23 x 21.5cm.
