Daily Painting: Recycling

Daily painting

Dear reader,


Today I looked for a new start with my business card, and I took a scrap of the underlying piece of paper: the one that is protecting my table and has lots of paint on it. Below I post a photo of this scrap  (on the black underground), and the final collage that came out of it.

    Simone, I love your recycling! I often grab similar source material when I’m painting. I’ll be creating something and wanting a bit of collage—sometimes I paint a collage piece in the moment and sometimes I go to my ‘organized’ stash of collage material (some in boxes, some in piles, some on a table, some on the bed), BUT sometimes I grab whatever is lying around closest to me and recycle it into my painting!

      That’s what I did this morning! I love the word ‘source material’. Going to keep that in mind.
