This mixed -media painting was inspired by Diana Ong’s “Sisy” painting. I liked the colors of the piece and wanted to play with the bright palette.
As I mentioned before, my Art journal is quite a Junk journal, containing all sorts of junk and left over materials. First , I prepared a big used mail envelope , collaging it with papers from both sides and creating a big pocket. Then, in the center of the page I pasted a piece of printed fabric. After that I painted with acrylics and added some stamping and stenciling. The quote is by R. W. Emerson:”The best of life is conversation, and the greatest success is confidence, or perfect understanding between sincere people.”
