This piece was started in a class and finished it at home. It began with collage of dress patterns in the shape of a cityscape. After layers and layers of acrylic paint and ink, I would mask certain areas and paint over it and move the masks around. This was entered into a show and I am happy to say it won an honorable mention. The judges remarks were “sophisticated with rich colors, great textural quality, really draws you in”. However, it was suggested I hang it vertically. Personally, I like it better this way, but knowing it can hang differently let’s me know there is balance in the painting.

    Congratulations on the award! Your collage technique sounds like a lot of fun and very creative. Dress patterns? Who would've thought!

    Thanks Gabrielle. My mother made all my clothes growing up so I've been using dress patterns for awhile. I love the lines in them, and the texture they give!
