11-09-15 “all happy and bright”

6×8″ acrylic, collage

I’m not feeling “all happy and bright” at the moment. I just learned that one of the artists I interviewed in my women artists’ project died earlier this year and I didn’t know about it until now. Only 55 years old—my age, in fact. Much too soon.

But on to the daily jane business. This piece is scraped and brushed acrylic with some of that computer-generated paper collaged on top. I could have used the entire piece of paper with these words, but it read from the bottom up and I wanted them to read from the top down this time—and for the paper not to hide quite so much of the happy and bright colors.
