“”Reinterpreting Autumn”~ An Original Collage Painting ~ (Sold!)”
Media: Acrylic Painting, Collage
Dimensions: 9″ x 12″
Date of Work: 2005
This collage is made from a variety of original miniature spin paintings; each one was individually hand-painted. I collaged the pieces together on a piece of plain white Bristol board to form the final composition you see here.
My background as a textile designer is definitely evident when you look at this piece; I am fascinated with patterns that repeat. However this piece is unlike any of my fabric designs considering that none of the elements are actually the same; the spirals are similar to each other, yet completely different. The color palette was inspired by various upholstery fabric samples in my collection, and the colors are interior-design-friendly.
If you’d like to make a similar piece, I invite you to use this idea as inspiration. If you’ve never tried spin art or collage, we make free spin art and collage art instructions for you to use.
Happy painting and collaging!
