In Sync©

"In Sync"
The dictionary will tell you:

I'll tell you:
The relationship between things that are happening or working at the same time.


How I composed this oil/collage:
I wanted to show my students how to arrange a simple abstract collage.

I used sheet music, scrapbook paper and newspaper on top of my oil painting.
I used a transference technique
(violin right under and 2nd picture)
creating a transparent layered effect that brings mystery and depth to this work.
The white sketch lines (left) I purposely left on my black canvas to give it an extra dimension.
I am pretty pleased with the results.


Abstract oil/collage
Dimensions: 18"x24" (46X61 cm) on Studio stretched canvas.
You can hang the painting just like this, even without a frame - the sides of the canvas are painted and there is a wire hanger attached to the back of the painting.
