Afternoon post: This is a collage work. I return to my desire to collage. Found some cloth, cut, place Angelina fiber on the canvas after having given the background a lot of layers. I am missing my butterflies this year because my butterfly plants have died. I am remembering the many butterflies that were over the trees getting the nectar so delightful to them. Enjoy a fantasy.
This small painting is part of a series of small paintings I have been doing. The media used is acrylic inks. I love the fluidity of the ink on wet paper.
A few lines finished the painting. It was one of those moments when life seems perfect. It helps to have a painter friend come paint with me some times. He is a gifted painter and a good friend. Moments such as these are treasured and this small paintings represents that feeling.
This painting is based on the beautiful gardens of Giverny, France. This is Monet’s garden which was photographed by a neighbor of mine who went to France and visited the gardens. He is an excellent photographer and made a tape he shared with me. Of course, being the lover of flowers that I am, I just had to paint a rendition of some of the scenes on the DVD .
The painting is a mixed media collage.
This painting is reworked and cut from a larger one. Thought the composition would be more interesting. As usual the colors are my favorite ones.
I had a good painting day yesterday with a friend and it was a happy day. The painting reflects this feeling, I hope. The painting is done on paper with fluid acrylics and lines in pastel.
