I’ve been working on a painting for the last couple of months or so. I can’t seem to finish it because I don’t know where its going.
It’s called Pearl’s Mother and below is a detail from the painting. The medium is oils.
Below is the original sketch I did in August, on a piece of notebook paper.
On another note, my grandson celebrated his 4th birthday on the 13th of this month. I made him a collage to celebrate Number 4, and his love of race cars. His new bedroom decor will now be all about race cars, including his bed! I thought this little collage would be fun to hang in his room!
I did this using a a cradled wood mixed-media art board. My youngest daughter, the graphic design artist, helped me make the paper for the backgroud using photo shop and some stock photos from the internet. I had a little collection of various vintage wheels,tires, and other trinkets, and I recently purchased the little racing cars from ebay just for this collage. They are about one and a fourth inches long and made of tin, their graphics are lithographed. The green car is #4, and doesn’t show well in this photo.I covered a match box with a paper print of an old stopwatch and the number four (about 2 inches long)I’ve had for ages – just proves that artist’s eventually do find a use for all their little collected bits and pieces! The entire size is 11 x 14 inches.
On the back I put a cutout of the Beatle’s and a verse from “All Together Now.”
