Just finished a new piece titled "Winter Rain." I love painting index cards. After a few layers this simple material acquires the texture and patina of polished leather. I cut thin strips of collaged paper and created sharp rainfall patterns. I realized that I don't have to glue the entire strip - leaving the bottoms free allows for the paper to rub together and create a pattering sound, similar to rain.
2010 Christmas Cards
A late start and a huge rush with Christmas cards this year. Luckily I had some beautiful paper to cut up into abstract shapes. A velvety matte red, green marbled paper from Fierenze, shiny white paper and some black seconds.
