Eggs for Breakfast©

ABSTRACT COLLAGE/Painting
Dimensions: 24'x34' (61X 86.5 cm)

This collage/painting is totally made of (a Dutch) news paper on soft board
Unfortunately on your screen, you won’t get a sense of the texture of the paint, (news) paper, the shimmer of the Rhine stones and the other material.

I love the darkness of the raw umber and the copper earth tones I used, such as raw sienna, which gives EGGS FOR BREAKFAST the warm color effect.

In the golden paint drops (left) I glued sienna colored Swarovski's Rhine stones. It's giving that extra sparkle which this piece needed.

Framing: I glued the soft board on triplex, and “framed it” with sheets of music.
Then I used modeling paste over the music paper, sanded it, which gives it the marble like look. I finished the frame with a golden gloss wash, which makes the color soft and warm.
