Torn Paper Collage Portrait Painting ~ Texas Contemporary Daily Painter Nancy Standlee

"Charles"
Torn Paper Collage Portrait Painting
18 x 18 in. on canvas

This is my second collage portrait since taking the Derek Gores workshop in Florida December 11 and 12. To see the first collage portrait go to my blog post HERE. This is a Christmas gift for a friend and I included some personal touches in the painting, sports, A&M, crossword puzzles, his daughter's name, etc. I'm enjoying this process so much I'm now asking friends to save me their old magazines!

I found this collage artist in the January issue, 2011 of Southwest Art Magazine and if you like torn paper collage you will enjoy looking at his site. Click HERE for Richard Curtner's Art.

Wishing all my blogger friends and readers a very Merry Christmas from Texas.

Hi, Jeanie, Yes Elizabeth produces some amazing work. I mentioned her in my post

and again June 23, about Koi Collage. I'm trying to decide whether to take another Derek Gores workshop or not?

Eva, thanks for the kind comments and please try it. I'd love to see your efforts. Try yourself first and no one gets their feelings hurt!! That's why I did my own at the Derek workshop.
