FLOWERS FOR YOU, 8X8 COLLAGE SOLD

I had so much fun with my apple collage a few weeks ago, I decided to try another.  This one is on a canvas panel and I layered a lot of colored tissue papers to make new colors.  It also has a bit of metallic ribbon.


This is a great example of the wonderful and unique art available on Etsy.  The creative artist, Danny Phillips from Austin, Texas has a great selection of his clever collage paintings.  He has developed a unique technique for his backgrounds, as shown here.  Visit his site here.  One of my guilty pleasures....surfing Etsy!

Just gorgeous! The colors and texture are great. It has some watercolor feel, too. I like the way you linked it from fb to here. i picked your picture on fb to see it larger and it took me to your blog. How do you do that?

Love it Carol! I have a favorite collage artist and I love her technique too. You may be familiar with her - Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson. If you don't know her work, take a look!

Also, I gave you a shout out and on my blog post yesterday!

Thanks, Carol - both pieces were a pleasure. If I was rich, I'd have to have an art wall or three.

This is beautiful, Carol! Love all the soft color and texture. Collage seems a great way to eliminate any fussiness and get to the heart of a subject. Have you read Ken Kewley on Color or looked at his collages? Hope your foot is healing well!

I love the apple collage. One of my best friends from Hawaii is coming to stay with me for 2 days in a few hours and she does a bit of collage for fun. Our plan today is to stay in my studio. I will paint and she will play around with ?paint, collage - something. I think I will bring my computer in there and get her on your blog - she'll love it!
