AEDM Day 24 ~ White on White collage [Happy Thanksgiving]


This Is How We Do It
I've put the final touchs on my collage today! The group at Art(that Matters) is presenting a show called White On White and it was decided that all art is to be all white. Since I do watercolor primarily I knew I'd have to venture out of my comfort zone if I were to do something following that criteria. I went to Home Depot and picked all the paint chips in the white section. There were hundreds of whites!! So I made this collage then painted over with some white acrylic paint. I glued it all down on to a masonite board. I like how it came out. Not sure if I'll attempt another collage soon, its alot of work!

We took our little trip into the city to see the parade and I took loads of photos. I'll post all of them on my Flickr photostream later this evening. Here are a few favorites:

We took the LIRR into Penn. It was early :) Joey's looking tired!

70th Street and CPW... They were out in full force!
 


Beautiful day for a parade!

I'm a color-lover, so I'm kinda surprised to say this--but I REALLY like the white on white collage. It looks great!
