Going to New York City!

The 12"x12" collage above will be traveling to New York next week to be in the "Small Works" juried exhibit at the National Association of Women Artists Gallery on Fifth Avenue! The show will run February 1-22. It is a thrill to be juried into this show and a great start to 2011.

2 canvases, 1 piece

A friend who is a painter and chair of a nearby university's art department suggested pairing a geometric (cut rectangles composition) with an organic (torn paper collage). I didn't go quite that far, but I paired two canvases and two scenes together. The top one is all cut rectangles pieced together from three sets of filtered prints and the bottom one has a few darker rectangles applied to the image and some leaves layered over the image of grasses. I like the different treatments on the two and the different size canvases (the top is 12" x 16" and the bottom one is 12" x 6").
