California Art Explosion Art Show

I was in an art show last weekend that was California themed. You can see photos of the event here.

This blog illustrates my artistic process behind the pieces. I started out with three metal pieces and drilled holes into the tops. Then I drew the figures with a black prismacolor pen. I cut out sections of old maps of California for wisps of hair and adhered them to the pieces. Then I painted on the metal using black acrylic paint and spraypainted with silver spray paint to push the acrylic into the desired shape while it was still wet. I wrote original quotes onto the work and tied black velvet ribbon through the holes to hang. Enjoy.
