My Town




Inspired by the natural surroundings here in So. California, I've made these two collages of a very popular hiking and biking trail in my neighborhood.

Whiting Trail 7-1/4" x 11", collage
Holy Jim Trail  7-1/4" x 11", collage

My backyard overlooks this bike/hiker path, and on weekend mornings we can hear people talking as they walk along below us. 

The white splatter is from quickly spraying drywall compound to look like water.  I practice my touch on scrap paper first because it comes out so strong.   Then I sprayed my piece, but there's no going back once you spray.  That's it.



 If your interested in purchasing these, they will be available in my Etsy shop.

Wow these are neat! I was looking for dry wall compound yesterday, apparently it's good for making paper mache clay (along with toilet paper, flour and water!). I guess it's a powder of some sort, like what we call 'filler' in the UK? Didn't think you could spray it... great idea!

Oh!These are amazing! I love all the texture...have you seen Stephen Quiller's art? this reminds me of his work..he is an artist from Colorado...uses lots of texture in his nature paintings. Check out his work when you get a chance! Have a great weekend! xxx
