New Inspiration in Unexpected Places

May 31, 2011

We had a cookout for 14 people yesterday, so I needed my studio table. That meant removing the table cover made from freezer paper that I’ve been using for the past 3 months. I’d been tempted to take it off anyway, because I love what’s been happening as I use it to mix paints and as a surface for rolling up paint on my brayers.

Since I had to take it off, I decided to photograph the whole piece. What I love about doing this are the unexpected color blends and combinations, as well as the variety of paint application. I like using pieces of these table covers in collage.

And here are some closeups of the same piece. Oh, the possibilities!
