Oblique Motion 1

Standard

“Oblique Motion 1”  Acrylic, collage, on canvas 18×36 inches

I’ve been working on this painting for the last month and a half-   I’m calling it finished because I am tired of thinking about it.

Detail – you can see the collage of papers I put down before I started to paint.  I used sandpaper to bring out the edges.

This is my favorite part of the whole painting – I like the soft look in her eye.

I like the background above her head in this detail, which I realize now doesn’t show in this shot – but it does in the full painting.  That piece of music on the right edge is written for four voices – music where one voice sings differently (music majors) sorry if I’ve over simplified, anyway – Oblique Motion is the musical term for this.
