"The sun rose brilliantly above, reflecting the hues of red, orange, lavender and blue in the pond before me. The viridian shadows changed to lemon yellow and lime green as the light washed the morning and I tried in vain to save a piece of this miracle on canvas."
Acrylics, collage, stitching in a hardback.
Books are my favorite base/substrate when I work with collage & acrylics. The texture of the paper, the juxtaposition from the very start. There's an incongruity - the content that already exists - and the paint, texture, imagery, color & words that I add.
