Collages on Wood...

I've been working on some new art...going back to my first love which is collage. I'm currently working on four pieces, each 12" x 12". These are done on birch plywood that HB cuts for me.


This one makes me think of a jungle so I've named it...
In the Jungle


Sorry this photo is a bit blurry but I think you get the idea.
Not sure what I'm calling this one...
and I don't think it's finished yet.

I love working on wood. Collage pieces go down so nicely and don't seem to wrinkle as much as on a canvas. Plus I can use my paint pens without any problems. I think from now on it's going to be wood for me!

  2. These are bright and colorful Janet. Powerful art. I like wood also. It just seems to take paint better than canvas. I've never made a collage painting on wood, but I have collaged plain paper on wood to paint over. Have you seen Priti Lisa's latest collage on wood? It's really nice. I love these rich colors you have used. You really have an eye for color.
