Magic Moon Pumpkin Patch by Angela Harmon
My garden always inspires my art. The Cinderella pumpkin patch was abundant last year with beautiful red pumpkins with long trailing stems.
The collage papers are hand painted using fluid acrylic paints on many types of papers using a multitude of stencils, both commercially made and household items. I used items like bubble wrap, sponges, discarded toy parts, combs, and even fresh plant leaves as stencils and for mark making.
For this painting I used different patterns of painted papers using thin rice paper, old LP record insert papers, deli paper and heavy construction paper. I made the straw looking paper in the right corner by applying thick layers of acrylic paint on heavy paper resulting in a raised effect. How the papers are torn make all the difference in the overall effect when adhering them onto the design. Tearing rather than cutting papers with scissors results in a more organic design
This is a 9x12 mixed media collage painting on wood that has been preserved with a clear fixative and ready to hang, no glass needed
