Ol Red

'Ol Red'
Torn Paper Collage

This old pick up has been painted more than once! I have it in gouache, and in watercolor. I am still trying to decide if I want to do a big collage of a vehicle, so I am experimenting on smaller ones. It was like the others, just a lot of fun to do. In the original photo, it is blue and rusted, but I wanted to try the red. I may get crazier...and do another one in the blues. I am doing a demo tomorrow in Hobbs NM, for the art asc. there, so it helped me decide on the colors for that too.
This is availabe, unframed, but ready to hang.

Daisy De Soto & Little Daisy

'Little Daisy'
Torn Paper Collage

'Daisy DeSoto'
Transparent Watercolor

Daisy DeSoto is a watercolor I did, and the first show it was in, sold.
and I always liked it, and would love to do another one, but probably wouldn't
be like the first one. I have been thinking of doing a 30x40 torn paper ...old vehicle,
so I thought I would experiment with a 10"x10" and see if I was brave enough to try
the BIG canvas. So, I printed out a copy of my original in B/W, and did the small one..'Little Daisy ' It definitely wouldn't let me be picky with the details! I think I will do a big old pick-up
on the large canvas. Am thinking a red one. ...but I will have to figure that out when I
get ready to do it.

I am excited..I have sold 6 paintings in the last 2 weeks! 5 of them collages.
May not happen again for a long time, but am going to enjoy it while I can!
