Collage Work in Progress
Unfinished projects - don't like 'em. I started this collage version of a friend's pet dog over a month ago, and it sat on top of the DVD player in my little studio making me feel guilty. This week I decided to push the pup further toward completion, although I still have a large painting to finish for a local gallery. I've shown this work in progress to a couple people, with a lukewarm response. I don't know - the vintage papers, and bright colors appeal to me. He's not finished. His right eye is only painted; no paper has been applied yet, and I want to fine tune the straight lines on his forehead. He needs a suggestion of whiskers as well. I hope he gets a warmer response when he's finished.
