Longhorn Collage ~ "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" by Texas Daily Painter Nancy Standlee
16" x 20" on MDF board Acrylic paper collage
I have so many longhorn photographs since our collaborative painting group, Canvas by Canvas, has painted several longhorns. This particular photo was taken by Connie Michael and I've always thought it a great pose. To get the longhorn's attentions we've yodeled (and we can't yodel), played loud music, brought them snack bars, anything. We'll be driving along and if a longhorn has spectacular horns and is close to a fence, someone will yell, "Photo Op" and out we'll run and hope the chiggers or snakes are sleeping. On my previous posts I've given links to others who paint with paper and I think you would enjoy visiting those links.
Wow, oh, wow, there is paper everywhere and little bitty pieces to boot but I'm not throwing any of them out. I painted most of these papers either in workshops or for a particular project. The background is a map I got of the Cedar Creek area and Gun Barrel City where we rent a lake house and go for a long painting weekend.
I'm giving an art journaling workshop at Dena's Ranch the last of July. One class is filled but there may be room in the 2nd class. Call Dena and see. We will have some fun for sure, painting entries about our daily life in the "Love Your Life" class.
