This mixed media painting incorporates a few different processes built up over multiple layers. It was made with collage, acrylic paint, and a screen print image. The collaged classified ads are from a recent Chicago Reader and the crossword puzzle from the Tribune.
I've been doing a lot of screen printing in 2009 and this was my first experiment to blend my painting and screen printing. I threw in some collage to create another layer and provide some background interest. In some places the newsprint crinkled giving it some texture. This piece is part of a series of about 30 screen prints of water tanks on paper and also on old record albums. Those are still in the works but should be done soon.
