New series: city collages

Dublin, Ireland, 24 x 18 cm, found paper and acrylic on panel.

Tampere, Finland, 24 x 18 cm, found paper and acrylic on panel.

I really enjoyed making these, and I’m pleased with the initial results (I’ll do a little more work on the Tampere one, at least). The collage elements consist of paper (maps, fliers) from the cities themselves that I’ve collected on my travels. I need to buy more panels so I can continue the series.

I think this one is finally finished (although this photo of it is somewhat out of focus):

Piran, Slovenia, 40 x 30 cm, mixed media on panel.
