Rodeo Clown


'Rodeo Clown'
16x20
(canvas)

This is my 4th collage with torn paper. The 16x20 got very large before I could finish.
I was wondering why in the world i used it, but it was what I had on hand.
This is very creative, and I believe it might be intuitive too, because you sort of do what looks or feels right. I am still using acrylics here and there. It makes me feel better, and makes me feel like I am really painting. I am surprised at the rich colors you can get using this method.
I have a new one sketched off. Plus I have been working on some more 'New Spur' paintings.

Wow Susie you've taken to this method like a duck to water. I think the clown may be your best one yet...then again I say that after I see each one. Bravo!!!
