Transformation Violet #2
6″ x 8″ x ¾”deep, on stretched canvas
acrylic pieces added to a small textured canvas
This small painting is a collage of separate acrylic paint pieces. The process is completely serendipitous! Paper-thin pieces are made by pressing a dab of acrylic paint on creased palette paper, to produce a mirror image. Dried pieces are scraped off with a razor blade, combined to compose a butterfly-like image, and glued to the textured canvas. A coat of gel medium is applied over the entire canvas. Stricking deep hues of violet, orange and red.
