On a Tear

A torn-paper landscape on display at the Peabody Memorial Library in Jonesport grabbed me. Loved the basic torn shapes, the gift of the paper's playful refusal to blend seamlessly. Could I translate that collage effect into acrylics?

Not so much, as it turned out. Not this time.

But I could play with similar colors and impressionism.

Brightened my day!

  1. Like how you used this for your header ... looks great! I also like the picture next to your name :) This blog is coming alive!

  2. Thanks for your feedback re the header and my profile picture. I like the upbeat, playful feeling of both. Bit by bit, I'm polishing up my blog. More to come but I need to figure out techie stuff first, not to mention complete a painting a day!
