Two recent collages on painted backgrounds ~ the top one is 8 x 8 inches, the one below, 5 x 7 inches. Both on matte board. When I have paint left on my palette after a project, I like to paint backgrounds to do something else with later.
I bought the necessary Golden OPEN paint when I was in Eureka on Tuesday, and started the first lesson in Layer Love 2.0 yesterday. I'm liking that OPEN paint, it moves quite differently than Fluid Acrylics.
I watched Jersey Boys last night and really enjoyed it. Also saw Whiplash recently (loved it), and a great biopic of Cesar Chavez. All via Netflix.
