Fifty Shades of Grey, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic collage, 12x12
If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that I live to do something different every now and then to stretch out the brain a little. Today's painting, Fifty Shades of Grey, was done for the Art Center's upcoming show, Black and White.
I did one painting as a landscape. Then I looked for another way to use my materials and do something I hadn't done for a while - collage. I always enjoy fitting the parts together in an interesting composition. By using dark and light, and all the variations of grey I was able to compose the painting. A few little white dots and a couple of odd shapes to help lead the eye finished it up
The reception will be tomorrow, Tuesday, September 11, 2012, at the Marco Island Center for the Arts, 1010 Winterberry Street. I'll be there. Will you?
