Work in Progress

This is a paper on paper collage with interesting depth and color but no purpose.  I don't know where to go from here.  It needs something...else. Maybe a black dragon flying across the moon?

The Red Lights of Amsterdam

Way back in these archives there is a series of paintings, "Nude Studies out of the Closet", done in a Figure Study class (teacher: Don Andrews).  I used smaller versions of them in this collage (10x13) over little squares of colored tissue paper.  Trying to get the illusion of the Redlight District's doorways reflected at night in the canal,  I covered the whole thing with pink cellophane.  It's not exactly a success, but fun!

They "gyre and gimbal in the wabe"
the burly guy, the mermy babe.
Their lips are sealed, nary a bubble!
They're all at sea and they're in lubble.

In The Deep Blue Sea

Oh, no!  Not another mermaid!  Actually, this is a painting of a jellyfish communicating with a mermaid.  What do you suppose they're up to?

About the Birds

See what I mean about the birds?  Nobody likes this painting because she is too long-waisted, and then there's the bird...(I, however, like it very much.  So there.)

Eyes of God

This is the first of my paintings I was willing to hang in my house.  After several unsuccessful attempts to put faces on the children I gave up and decided they were 'the eyes of God' and left them to the eyes of the viewer.  The little chicken (lower left) was cut out of paper and pasted on because I wasn't sure I wanted it there.  Later it fell off and disappeared - probably revealing the answer to why the chicken crossed the road. ( I have a thing for cutting out birds and pasting them on otherwise acrylic paintings.  Don't ask.)
