This week I decided it was time to create some new collage papers, with the gelli plate as part of my plan. It was a fun morning in the studio, and some interesting collages resulted.
In between collage sessions, I always try to do some work on the panels that I’m getting ready for the gallery. I will add some paint strokes or texture and then they have to dry between coats, giving me time to work on collage.
Waiting is the hardest part of painting. I still tend to want instant gratification, which is possible with collage. Combining the two activities is a good way of working.
Here is one of the finished paintings.
