You can see that the first layers contain words - I pulled them out of a Spanish or Latin dictionary. Because I love languages, I alternately pull from them and believe that they add an incredible amount of interest.
After the initial drawing and layers of color, I also added some postage stamps. I've been a stamp collector for most of my life, and only recently did I realize why I do this - I'm just collecting pictures! Of course! What do artists do but look at and collect pictures!
Especially in the petals I love these reds and the layers of color, one on top of the other. It is here where I think the words peeking out are most seductive.
For the life of me, I can't remember if these are watercolors or acrylics. I water my acrylics down a lot and use them as watercolors, so it really could be either/or. Love the colors and drips in this closeup of the head.
Oh, so pretty the way the colors gradate one into the other. I like the crazy bird, too, looking, of course, into the painting.

We're looking at #Installation #art in my classes. I consider #danielburen to be one of the best. Gary and I experienced his exhibit when we were in Paris. Unforgettable.
When we stood under each color, we were embued with that color and feeling. Here's yours truly. Loving it.

One of my favorite painting tools. An old gift card; often my 'brush' of choice. If you want to recycle your gift cards, toss them at me. Let me know if they have money on them; I guess I'd have to make the supreme sacrifice of emptying them before use. #colorcatstudios.etsy.com ☺️
