Day 26 Horsing Around

Horsing Around
Collage 5 X 6

I made this one a little smaller to fit into a 5 X 5 opening in a mat and frame. It's made with hand painted tissue, altered magazine, security envelopes and a part of a page of a poetry book that has been painted. It was that scrap of poetry that sent me in the direction of finding a horse to use as an acrylic transfer. The marks were made with a watercolor stick then sprayed with fixative. Using watercolor sticks makes it easy to erase until I get the marks that I like, then I fix them before coating the collage with gloss medium.
Four more days to go...stay tuned!

I started watercolor painting earnestly in 1991 after I moved to Florida. My husband and I are retired, and we are both artists. We both have works displayed  at the Wildchild Gallery in Matlacha Florida.
