Yesterday's Collage


No matter how many combinations of colors I use in my work, I am still drawn to my graphic design roots and the use of black & white. I absolutely love stark, bold graphic designs!

This collage was created by painting a mixture of gesso and glazing medium over newspaper as the base layer. Then I added strips of colorful batik fabrics. The final layer is black acrylic paint.

While I like all of the collages you've recently posted this one is my favorite. It keeps drawing me in to look again and again.

Thanks, Denise --- I'm glad you like it! This one is actually one of my favorites as well, so much so that I am currently working on a series on 9 more.
