This 4" x 4" series continues. Working on very small scale encourages all sorts of experimentation. You can do anything and risk anything because it goes quickly and the investment is not large....try new composition methods, new colour arrangements, new paint sequences. I liked how the cloud mass moves in on the right....white paint was smeared beneath before the top shape was glued. It's a little thing, but I never did that before. I remember the sense of quickly fading light as a new bank of clouds moved in after a summer storm.....little bits of brighter green flashed to the eye in the foreground...I don't know what that little building is on the chick-a-biddies' property....it may be an outhouse, but it sure isn't discreetly positioned.
4" x 4" acrylic collage painting on paper, paper size 5" x 5", soon to be listed on Etsy.
