I have been struggling all day with the collage that has been giving me a difficult time lately. I can't remember how many layers of paint it has had now, but it has had many.
Tonight I lay the canvas on the floor and scrubbed off as many layers as I could revealing yet another unsatisfactory surface. I took the canvas outdoors and hosed it clean.
I have now painted the surface black and I will work some gold features back into it.
About midday, I had a call from a friend and fellow artist Ella. She was clearing out her garage and had a small timber step ladder to give me. She had seen my work called 'Water Falls' and thought I may like another ladder. Of course I was delighted and picked it up straight away!
I set off for home, but decided to drop in at the Bundaberg dump shop. Really, its title is 'Trash and Treasure'. I should try to get used to calling it that.
So there I found the lovely old pram.
These are just the types of domestic objects that I like to use in my artworks. The artwork below - 'Water Falls' uses a full sized timber ladder and a bridal veil and is a response to the recent flooding in Bundaberg.
Till soon! cx
