On 10, January 19

...the sky was wonderful. You get some chicken noodle casserole with this painting. Acrylic collage painting on thin, gessoed birch panel 7.5 x 12 inches.

I often like to do things with text, and signs of past history on the collage this case, it fits in quite nicely because there are little bits of darkness in that steep road ditch. There is an extremely bright ultramarine blue sheet beneath the white of the snow.....I layer these papers sometimes, to get the white on top to behave slightly differently. You can see hints of that blue in a place or two..... a form of underpainting. But for the collage, it only works if the over sheet has some degree of transparency.

For some reason, this one seems like a companion piece to the one from yesterday, even though they look very different.
