"Artful Dodger" Collage Portrait Painting
Amid the work on my Sputnik collages I have had the urge to paint a portrait. I like to use 16x20x1.5 canvas for my portrait work and have had two in my studio for a while. I think after my 13th sputnik collage I have taught myself a much needed lesson on staying focused. I felt that I earned the right to stray from my series & get started on a portrait. This piece is done in acrylic, collage and gold leaf. I started him with the Mad Hatter in mind but as the painting progressed the artful dodger emerged. I was pleasantly surprised that he made an appearance. He is more youthful than I imagine the Mad Hatter to be. This means I get to paint another Mad Hatter! The excitement never ends! :) Have a wonderful weekend.
