Orange Series No. 24

Orange Series No. 24

Well, I deceived you!  Originally I had create 24 works in the Orange Series.  Then I made the cover for it and I needed to have what I thought was three more back-to-back collages.  I made them and put them inside the cover.  I had one too many.  So now I have 30 in the series.  I will share the cover with number 30.  I really like how it came out....well, it is the mock up.  I have to make the final cover so that it can include no 30.

When the Collage Gods align I have to smile. :-)  I love how the wooden Indian and the background papers go together.  Thanks Collage Gods.  Wouldn't that be something if there actually were such Beings?! :-)

I particularly like how the man in green is situated in this piece.  My eye is drawn toward the other two images because of this stance which in turn leads me across the piece.  Also since he is in step moving forward that gives the piece movement.

I have used maps, numbers, Portfolio pastels, vintage photos, cartoons, focal points, handmade papers, Woodies, tissue paper, acrylic paint, and graphite pencils in the Orange series.  I am working on the cover to house the series.  It will be a wrap around closure with embedded magnets, a new method of closure for me.  It works well, too.  I used some techniques for the wrap around that I learned at a workshop in Oregon in June.  Thanks Margo Klass.

Balance is so important in a piece of art, just as important as balancing on a trapeze.  The colors in this one just work well for me.

I love how this one came together and it was not planned but evolved.  The woman is looking through binoculars and the cartoon is what is seen through binoculars.  Also, bird watching seems to be involved and as we know binoculars are a favorite tool of birdwatchers.

I love how the background goes so well with the main focal point, the vintage clown.  I started using Portfolio pastels again in this series.  I had forgotten all about them for awhile but they are on my radar now.
