This piece is a recent effort in mixed media collage. I started with a background made using acrylics, soft and oil pastels and tissue paper. I then took pieces of giclee prints of 2 of my paintings that I did of street scenes in San Francisco and added them to this background.
Collage is very challenging for me because there is so much you can do and knowing when to stop or what is too much for the eye is not always obvious. My plan is to integrate this type of work with some of the experiments I’m doing with image transfers and overprinting with inkjet printers.
Yikes, my wife tells me I’m making all of this too complication and, as usual, she’s right! But it does make it interesting to see what happens.
