Collaboration

paper, acrylic paint, paper, vellum
7 x 7"

Created with Joan Mellon for "USPS Art Project," an artist collaboration designed by Christina Massey to bring people together while social distancing to help the struggling USPS. https://www.instagram.com/uspsartproject/
 
“Collaborations” began with Joan Mellon’s gestural image painted on 7” round paper (see inset). My first reaction was to add linear elements, in this case a translucent grid drawn on vellum. Then, to shift the painting’s serious minimalistic tone to include some whimsy, I added paper that I cut into loopy shapes along with using some unexpected colors."
