This watermedia piece is the result of a class project that I assigned involving working in a grid. I worked on it for two class semesters actually. It started out as nine very similiar trees. It was boring. One of my students said that she saw faces in the trees so I took her suggestion and outlined 9 different faces. After that step, I worked into it a lot with acrylic paint. Although it isn’t evident at all in the finished product, the original waterpaper ground is collaged with altered magazine pages–there are many layers to this piece both in thought, action and material.
The piece is 30 inches high by 22 inches wide unframed and is for sale for $1200.00
This piece was recently juried into the 20th Rockies West National Watermedia Show at the Art Center in Grand Junction during the month of March 2012.
