My newest finished artwork is one I have been working on for a while now, since before Christmas. The texture, colors, and mixed media are all things I’m happy with.I started with a simple canvas and some collage materials. The top of the canvas is magazine pages. I discovered the best all-around craft and art adhesive a couple of years ago – Lineco Neutral pH Adhesive and will never go back to any other adhesive again. It dries smooth, it is pH neutral, permanent, and not at all gooey!
Next, I painted over the tissue with acrylic paint. Then, added some oil pastels to add texture and visual interest to the rich browns.
Lastly, I added collaged items – pencil drawn bicycles parading along, buried classic cars, and a boulder or two.
