From the Studio...a new collage

NY Stroll
Here is the first piece of art completed in my new studio at the Lydia Pinkham Building in Lynn, MA. After working for years in a studio in my home, it's nice to have more space to spread things out and not be afraid to get dirty!

This is a digital mixed media piece. The background is a heavy mixed media paper lightly textured with gesso, random acrylic washes and mark-making. The foreground is a digital collage, comprised of photos I took in Central Park. It was printed with ultrachrome pigment ink on silk gampi tissue paper, and adhered to the background. The silk gampi allows the background to show through -- with a nice depth to it. I would imagine that multiple layers would be fun to play with!
