Collage stuff

I have begun posting some of the collages on Facebook that were in my fall show at Gallery in the Grove, Brights Grove, Ontario. Thought it was time to include them on the blog. The title of this one is "Spanish Class", 12x12 on wood, material, magazine clippings, paper, trim, and acrylic paint.

Waiting in A Coruna, Spain airport. After walking the Camino we were enroute to Bilbao. Required much time on buses and waiting in airports. As always lousy food and boredom.

Two ways of expression

Here are two of my paintings, still on Toronto island. The first is a palette tear off, some say it's a tick, others the head of a cow, others two people talking intimately. The second is a Plien Aire  of one of the lagoons here. Both are acrylics on birch panels.

Toronto Island

I am on Toronto Island with a group of female artists at Artscape Gibralter Point, a residence and studio place for artists and writers. We are all members of the Gallery Painting Group in London, On. These are two of my painting this week so far. We have had some terrific rain storms and some great sunshine today. There are seven of us so we are calling ourselves the Gang of Seven!

Week Fifty Two of A Painting A Week

Two postings for this last week of my posting for a year! It's been fun and the response has been gratifying. The first picture is an older collage. I paint the paper first with acrylics and then tear and assemble the collage. The second photo is of a work in progress, a new direction. Happy Spring!

Week Fifty of a Painting A Week
So I have recently discovered that many viewers thought I was posting a freshly done painting each week. But no, my intent was to post a painting each week for a year regardless of when it was done. Some have been brand new, others are old friends. 
Today I offer a new collage of my take on the fashion industry . More to follow!
