Sonata for Piano and Violin©

This collage/painting is proudly hanging in my solo show at the Gallery of the Lorelton (Wilmington DE), which will be opened today!
I'm so excited!!

Collage Art is unique because you take already existing materials to design your own piece of art.
All you need is an open mind and the willingness to explore.
I love working with traditional methods and materials in a total unexpected way.

I used different kind of paper, newspaper, acrylic paint, ink and pencil. I wanted to give this Collage/Painting an old look by painting the music sheets and background with raw sienna, which give the collage this antique feel.
Purposely I was leaving some light areas to provide the eye to travel throughout the piece.

For "Sonata for Piano and Violin" I was influenced by my musical background and by a strong sense of color (earth tones)

After I almost finished this collage/painting I glued the canvas board on a larger canvas, to incorporate the piece and to give it the desired depth.
