pink flamingo, Gail Collins
It's always exciting to see these pieces started in workshops come to completion. Here you can see Gail applying magazine papers to her under painting, which she did on a small canvas. Gail wanted to incorporate patterns and textures of color and ended up using a lot of materials with reference to breast cancer, which she found in her search for pink. Her variation of blues, lights and darks, in the sky is working very well, her use of smaller, darker pieces toward the bottom and larger "cloud like" pieces at the top, is really working. I am also proud of Gail's "directional ripping" of the paper, she is following the form of the flamingo, for a more dimensional effect. Way to go Gail!
