Something New

It's been a few days since I posted; have been busy going from demo to demo and seeing lots of interesting art things. Our club had a plen aire paint day in the downtown area and I went to take photographs of the buildings for future use. And, of course, all the usual busy work of this time of year, getting ready for Thanksgiving and going through Christmas decorations. I also have my art room torn apart to re-arrange. In the middle of all that, I did finally try what I picked up from the collage demo, which btw, was very interesting and got me all the more interested. So you'll be seeing more efforts along this line. Since this is really different for me I'd love to hear your comments and any suggestions!

I like the colors but that is not all of it. I can't really tell you yet what it is that intrigues me about this painting, I keep staring at it. Maybe it is the composition? I'm not sure. I let you know when I have it figured out, but I like it! :)

I know what you mean, Carola; I have admired the collage art of several artists and not really understood what I liked about it, maybe the color, or the composition, or the items used in it, I don't know. But I'm happy to be learning something about it.

Can't wait to hear what it is you figure out!!!!

I think I figured it out. There is a sense of balance in this painting. Everything in the painting leads the eye to another part of it, and another and another and finally back where the eye started. You keep exploring within the painting. Everything is in balance :)
