Memorial Day Demo


Memorial Day Demo
Our art association has a demo at the monthly meetings and the artist that was going to come, had to cancel, so I offered to do it.
I love to cut paintings up and weave them back together so I decided to do a flag, in honor of Memorial Day that we just celebrated.
To do this, you have to paint 2 of the same composition. I try to vary the values so it will show up more. In one of the paintings, I had a lot of purple in the sky, in the other one,I just had a pale cobalt blue sky. You cut one vertically, and one horizontally, then weave them. I cut these in a wavy line becauseI wanted, or hoped it would look like a waving flag.

Your wavy flag did good. Nice one. That should sell, partly for its creativity...and then the beauty of the colors and its treasure as our country's identifying symbol.

Neat!
