Back in June I shared these first few small pieces of art I had been creating on canvas. And here are a few more I’ve recently finished I’d like to share with you.
First up is a vintage cowboy image from a ripped dust jacket of Destry Rides Again
Being a farm girl and lover of all things vintage and bright, I love these types of campy western images. I layered paint, text (from the dust jacket excerpt), and medium to make the colors pop and look more vintage then they were. I’m on the lookout for more of these types of images for a series of B-western art.
Next up is a bird canvas.
I collect/hoard all sorts of old papers, sheet music, nature illustrations, fibers, and lots of other bits of stuff. For this piece I layered, old papers, stamps, paint, puzzle pieces, and twigs to create a pretty backdrop for a very sweet bird. I have more of these birds so there will be more of these for sure!
Now you might ask what I’m doing with all of these? Currently they are all hanging above my work table as one large collage, waiting for a new home somewhere.
