This is an assemblage / found object canvas I made recently.
I start off by priming the canvas in black. Then using a bunch of e6000 glue I glue on the first round of random bits and let dry. I paint those bits in black. and then repeat until I think it looks “done”.
Then I will keep adding thin layers of black and metallic paint until I think the piece is finished. This time the metallic colors I used were copper and chartreuse.
I save all kinds of random bits and now people I know have started saving me their random bits. And I save old paintbrushes, broken scissors, etc. I have enough stuff to make a bunch of canvases,
