Texture to Go

Last week I talked about collecting found objects. There are times when I see things that I can not pick up and take with me though. Textures. I discover beautiful textures all around me and collect them the only way I know how, through the tiny lens on my phone. From intriguing fruit at the grocery store that I’ve never heard of before to an old dilapidated metal post.
When I can, I will use these textures in my artwork. Here is an example where I took a print of one of my texture photos and added it to a mixed media canvas. After stripping the paper backing I had a flexible plastic like piece of material that wrinkled slightly when I adhered it to o the painted canvas adding depth.

This 6″ x 6″ mixed media canvas is available in my Etsy shop here.

  1. Great textures. I love the way you blend all these different textures to make wonderful one-od-a-kind pieces. Keep on creating and keep blogging to share.
