Fenestration started with a favorite color combination. I had no idea what it would look like when finished. The first pass was a light wash depicting a window with shutters and bushes underneath. That can now hardly be seen, as layers of paint were added on top to create an interesting composition leaving “windows” that look through to the original painting.

Mixed Media Collage
Explaining Relativity began with a fascination for Victorian woodcuts that illustrated new findings from the great explorers. As the descriptions were verbal, the illustrators used their imaginations to fill in, resulting in some rather odd creations. Then I found other fancies that related, culminating in the addition of more realistic birds that live in my neighborhood and a view of the canal in my front yard.

Pareidolia definition – “The tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.”

When painted over, graphite mixes in and dirties up the color. This gives this piece a sense of depth and age, while also suggesting the presence of the city. Graphite is used to outline images and frame in areas in this collage. It is smudged around creating the same effect as in the paintings. It also obscures the literal fact that a collage item might just be a piece of shopping bag or a handwritten letter and unifies it with the composition.
