Summer - acrylic mix media

432.00

SUMMER - a mix media oil and acrylic on canvas board plaster and recycled coiled paper.
I had to create some totally recycled canvasses to go along with the recycled dresses I am making with my Art Ecologie Group. I recycled the canvasboard from a fellow artist, she tosses all her scrap paintings and it so happens she had a handful of canvasboard paintings she hated (I have to say they really weren't worthy...) so I take everyone's trash and turn it around (I do recycle my own trash paintings by the way). I then covered this original piece of nasty art with some thick sculpting Gesso and painted the background. Then I built a wooden frame from scrap pieces of wood I have kept like everything else...

I did four pieces all at the same time, for this one I chose to go with a brown background and then cut out one thousand little leaves out of magazines and hundreds of magazine wiggly strips then glued the strips on the trunk and the leaves on the top.

I then added oil paints and acrylics on top of the paper to give it more color and texture.
