Day 325: “Discover”, mixed media and acrylic paint on wood panel
Today’s piece is 2 of 4 of the recently completed commission pieces. I centered this one around the theme of adulthood & americana with the title of “discover” (as a counter to the youth/’wonder’ piece).
I used stamps from Bruce’s collection, photo transfers and various paper pieces like a french reader page “maman/papa” (thanks Sophie for that!), “mammalia marry” and “yearning/you” from vintage dictionaries, a hymnal and a bit from A Midsummer Night’s Dream amongst other things.
One thought on “Miss American Pie”
the yellow knotted string (is it string or something else?) gives the work a sense of wrapped packaging to me – which adds to the sense of discover as in opening up the package. i like the American Flag feel of it too – Discover Americana – yeah, makes sense to me. cool.
