An Old Painting Transformed…

Ivory Tower, mixed media/collage, 12x12

Ivory Tower, mixed media/collage, 12x12

In this collage, I chose to work on top of an existing painting instead of painting on top of the collage elements as I’ve done on my other recent work. This was a piece I painted about 3 or 4 years ago, it seemed like as good a choice as any for experimentation–the imagery already had an aura of fantasy/mystery to it, so I tried to keep some of that in the color usage and collage elements, the stars on the tissue paper really seem to reinforce that somehow. It reminds me of a children’s book illustration.

I’ll continue with these collage pieces as a series, it’s turning into an interesting branch-off from my main body of work.
