Run to Me Little Chicks. I Will Feed You. 12065
12x12x1.5 torn paper and hand painted paper collage painting on gallery wrapped canvas
(The title came from text from a vintage children's book).
I've completed this rooster collage painting this week for the FWCAC show in Fort Worth. I've sold 4 collage paintings from the show and needed to cover a bare spot. The red area is collage from my hand painted papers and the feather area is from found papers like vintage books, music sheets, or crossword puzzles. The background is a Texas map with a few postal stamps for more design. The show will be on exhibit until June 28, 2012.
Some have asked me about the cradled Ampersand panels that I painted the Polka Dot Roses on in the last few posts. At Jerry's Artarama you can get them in flat panels, 3/4", 1 1/5", and 2" depth. Here is what my 3 foot long one looked like below. I haven't painted the edges yet and you can see a big drip on the side. Sometimes I like to stain with a light walnut but with the background being so dark I feel like maybe it would look better to paint in a dark color also.
