The portrait is complete! Of course there are a few areas that I’d like to fix, but I think I’m pretty much done with this one. I’ll probably return to it in a few weeks when I can approach it with a more critical eye.
More to come next week, since, well, I’ll be busy this weekend and won’t have much time to make art.
I finished this a couple of days ago but didn’t have a chance to take pictures of it until today. This is my first attempt at doing a landscape collage. I think I’ll work on a few more landscape collages–I like the idea of broadening my range of subject matter.
Here are the last two collages I’ve completed. I’ve just begun another dachshund collage. I think I’ll try to make another dachshund collage where the dog is an abnormal color.
I also recently joined the Art League and renewed my membership with the Del Ray Artisans. The Del Ray Artisans are about to have another juried exhibition, this one will be called “The Enduring Nude.” I think I’ll frame a sketch I did during one of my life drawing classes with them and enter it.
I’ve decided to work on a coffee cup series as well as I get prepared for Art on the Avenue (in hopes that I’ll get into it). This is the first one I’ve completed and I’m currently working on another one.
I completed a collage of my roommate–I had to make a new one for an upcoming exhibition that a couple of students are holding in the library during our student research day. All I need to do now is get some better pictures of it, frame it, and then it’ll be ready to hang.
This week one of my professors let all the seniors know that we have an “All Senior Art Show” coming up. We have to submit a work of art by next week. Also, the piece can’t be from our senior thesis…it can be an extension of our senior thesis or something else we’ve done this year. Unfortunately I took all my artwork back home a few weeks ago, so I had to decide whether or not to go home this weekend or make a new work of art. I decided to make a new work.
This is the finished collage that will be up–it’s supposed to be a self-portrait but it doesn’t look too much like me. I decided to do a “half-finished” piece, so that you can see a bit of the process involved with my collages. I’ll take pictures once it’s up in the gallery space.
Here’s the completed collage for my senior thesis exhibition. This portrait was inspired by my cousin Scott, who passed away from cancer back when I was in high school. He was thirteen at the time, but now he lives on in our memories and the artwork made by my family (there are a lot of creatives in my family).
