Several weeks ago I took a Mixed Media painted fabric workshop from Judy Coates Perez. I realized that Judy's method would be a great way to illustrate a poem I've chosen to enter in the VAST (Visual Arts Society of Texas) / DPA (Denton Poet's Assembly) Collaborative Exhibition. The artists chose poems that were already written to illustrate and the poets chose art to write about.
I chose a poem written by Beth Honeycutt called the Joshua Tree. Below is the collaged poem with a yellow and orange underpainting and metallic turquoise overpainting.
More paint on top.
Sheer fabric added with gel medium and quilted.
Thanks Judy for the class. This is fun.
Next project, a new purse.
