Nature Study in Green and Yellow

I fell in love with this piece!  It was an experiment that worked out.  For the background, I used old book pages and a mix of pale umber and gold acrylic paint for texture.  The design is made of illustrations from various vintage books.  This would be a fun “i spy” piece to hang in a children’s room.  Can you spy the dinosaur??

Usually when I make a collage, I already know who I am making it for.  This was a fun project I did with no particular person in mind, but I knew that I wanted to do something a little geeky and masculine.  I ended up gifting it to a friend for her little boy’s room.  Glad it found a good home!

Last June when I turned 29, I set a goal for myself to create 30 pieces of art before I turn 30.  If I include all of the art that I made for my wedding, then I definitely cleared my goal.  I think I’ll make this a tradition – 31 pieces of art by my next birthday.  :)

I did this painting based off of an illustration out of the book Children’s Guide to Knowledge:  Wonders of Nature, Marvels of Science and Man (Parent’s Magazine Press, 1974).   The entire book is full of gorgeous illustrations of plants, animals, historical people and iconic places; a wonderful treasure that I was lucky enough to stumble across at a thrift store.
