After seeing the stencil/collage portraits that I'd done of my two daughters, a local woman contacted me to see if I'd do some similar pieces of her three daughters. Of course, I said yes!
I built cradled, 20" x 24" hardboard panels to use in this project. Each piece began with a collage background; I tried to use images that were significant somehow to each of the ladies. The remainder of the process was pretty much layering spray paint through stencils. I hand cut all of the stencils. Here are the finished pieces.
I'm extremely pleased with how these turned out, and I believe the client was equally pleased. Here's hoping this leads to more commissions in a similar vein. Fun project...
Last summer I built a few cradled, hardboard panels. A couple of weeks ago I did some collage work on three of them, with the intention of going back later to add some other elements, such as spraying on stenciled images. Today's weather allowed me the opportunity to spray outside. That said, here's a short slide show of today's art output.
