Art of the Day: Sunday August 18, 2013

Paradise Is...

- by Melanie Douthit

This week's theme: Collage

A collage is a technique for creating art that uses different materials like paper, cloth or anything that can be glued or affixed onto a surface. The term collage comes from the French word "coller" meaning "glue". It was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso when collage evolved into a distinct technique in modern art during the early 20th century.


Art: Paradise Is... by Artist Melanie Douthit

"Paradise is..." This painting was part of a themed show at our local June gallery crawl - our theme was "Pink Flamingos". I used a vareity of paper craft items in the body of the bird. The moonlight is reflected in the deep blue waters. I had so much fun working on this piece. I hope you enjoy it.
