acrylic, collage (painted screen material) on w/c paper, 10 X 11″
to save the land and the sea,
the mountains and trees
the very air we breathe
when the time is ripe
it will open the door
The obsession with GOLD remains. I was looking for a way to make gold mesh and found three easy-to-obtain materials to paint: 1) cheesecloth, 2)a mesh fabric you can buy at the fabric store, and 3)light-weight window screen material (available as yardage cut from a roll at the hardware store).
You can use the mesh as a stencil to sponge paint through and also as collage pieces to cut and glue.
The gold “sky” in the piece above was created by painting over a piece of cheesecloth with two shades of gold acrylic. The screen material is gray, but I painted it gold and also black, which resulted in the random markings seen here.
