Abstract Art

Abstract Art 
I am in the process of finishing up twenty new works. Thus the works will appear over ten days on this blog either singly or as diptychs.  Each of the twenty works are "painted" with magazine papers. They are all red, black and white papers.  I have added paper yarn, cheese cloth, tissue images, dictionary and photo images, and added some acrylic paint here and there.  The works are all going to end up in a Plexiglas box and can also be displayed as a stack journal.  I am submitting three diptychs for the NW Collage Society Summer Show.

Love this one, John. Looks so rich with that dull red. (Sorry - dull has two meanings but you know what I mean!)
