Rip 2006 - Holy Carp 2

- by Robin Cruz McGee

This week's theme: Past EBSQ Ripped Off Shows

This month EBSQ is running the annual show that may be the most enjoyed by EBSQ members. This is the month for the annual EBSQ Ripped Off Show. EBSQ members pair up and "rip off" each other's work. The fruits of this effort are then entered in the show for all to see. This week Art Of The Day looks at work from previous EBSQ Ripped Off Shows.

If you want to see what EBSQ artists are coming up with this year, please check the "8th Annual Ripped Off Show". New work will be added until the end of the month so be sure to check in often.

Art: Rip 2006 - Holy Carp 2 by Artist Robin Cruz McGee
This is my entry in Ripped Off! 2006, a rip off of Tracey Green's Carp 2. The work is done in copper in a technique called repousse`. Repousse` is the manipulation of a flat sheet of metal into a three dimensional form using a series of punches and a pitch bowl. Tracey's original drawing was a Chinese brush watercolor ACEO. I like Tracey's brush work and especially this picture. Thanks, Tracey, for inviting me to participate!
