This collage and the one below were actually created on the same piece of mixed media paper. I was going to participate in a challenge that Jane Davies had going on over at her blog here. The idea was to create a composition on one piece of paper, which, when divided into four parts, you would not know each quadrant came from the same piece.
I had never participated in a challenge. I think because I do better work when I just start creating intuitively instead of focusing on an outcome. Well, I didn’t end up participating in this one either. Once I finished the painting, I kept seeing two distinct paintings, not four. I wish I would have taken a picture of the entire piece before I cut it up. The painting was created on a 9 x 12″ piece of Canson mixed media paper. I then cut out a 5 x 7″ piece and a 6 x 6″ piece to create the two paintings. I mounted them onto wood panels.
I am happy that I at least tried to do the challenge. Maybe the next time I’ll be able to submit what I create.
