Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Acrylic, collage, clear contact paper image transfer on w/c paper, 10 X 11″

An assortment of Susans with the evil mastermind – call her Ego Mistress – at the center, strict head mistress of the boarding school. . .But something tells me she’s met her match in this collection of wise ass girls.

Q: “Mirror, mirror on the wall.  Who is the fairest of them all?”

A: “None of the above.  She’s just off stage waiting for her call.”

As I’ve been saying, one must approach self portraiture with a sense of humor, and it helps to use Photo booth as well.  The Tuesday Muse group learned an image transfer technique last week and this was the demo.  Using a toner/laser printed image, place it face down on the sticky side of clear contact paper.  Burnish.  Soak it in water for a couple minutes and gently rub the paper pulp off.  Voila! A transparent image to glue onto your painted surface.

Now, how to deal with the evil Ego Mistress? Gang up on her with a bunch of other alter ego identities, the more the merrier.  I like to collect them and art is a great way to do that.
