The next project was inspired by the small pieces of crate I'd cut for the project above. I used small pieces, drew a city on them with oil pastel, and poured wax over the entire thing. I also created a stamp from a picture of a guy I saw in a 1950's encyclopedia I bought at the thrift store. I'm going to create multiples of him and place them across the city. We'll see how it turns out :)
Last but not least, I've been working on this canvas for some time now just testing things out here & there: the placement of the screen, the colors, etc. So far I like the look-I actually taped out layered of paint to make a grid & came back with the lighter color to make the blocks. Last night I put the metal pieces on by sewing them with a thin metal wire & I plan to put the screen back over the bright metal. Not finished yet but getting there!
