I recently completed this 9"x12" collage painting. Can you tell who inspired me? I'm utterly fascinated by
work. Could stare at it for hours. Her work makes me shake. That shaking feeling is what made me realize that I wanted to be an artist. Nothing but art makes me feel that way. It's like being seduced by a new lover. Back to the painting.... This actually began as an experiment inspired by one of
techniques where you dip a pipe cleaner in ink and feather it across the page and then scrape various colors of paint over the top with a credit card. Great idea! All my attempts looked like crap. Sigh. I put the papers away for a while and recently dug them out to see if I had any ideas. The I took another look at Lynne Perrella's series based on Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and some ideas took off. Stencil's and tar gel and t-shirt transfer paper, oh my! It was great fun and I'm really happy with it.
