A Rainy Weekend = Art

May 14, 2012

Over the weekend we got some very welcome rain, and in the process I had to change my schedule from outdoors to indoors.

Collage 032 – Collage with Hand Painted and Handmade Papers, 10×8″

And guess what that means! It means I get to do art. Saturday morning I brought out an assortment of papers, glue, and paint to the back porch where my studio table is still set up from a recent family gathering, and sat there having a glorious time listening to the birds and creating collages.

For this series, I decided to do some abstract landscapes. And this is where the hand painted and handmade papers become a very important palette, because of the rich variety of textures and colors available.

I will be sharing more of these in future posts.

    These papers work just so well for an abstract landscape with the beautiful range of textures and colours. I too wish you more rainy days. I’ve just returned from a readers and writers festival in Auckland where I was also privileged to see their wonderful art exhibition “From Degas to Dali”. Our art gallery is closed indefinitely so it was such a treat.
