Mixed Media Collage Funky Portrait

Sometimes you have to make art for the sake of creating art, and the more creative and funky, the better! My good friend, Sandy Dodd, who normally creates gorgeous landscapes, and beautiful paintings of landmarks, created an amazing collage self portrait a couple days ago. Check out her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/artworkbysandydodd. Her collage along with my husband’s self portrait yesterday was the inspiration for this mixed media collage piece.

When I first began painting years ago, I had an interest in mixed media collage, then for some reason (I don’t know why really), I stopped creating them. For the longest time I’ve just created acrylic, oil, and charcoal pieces. This piece was so much fun. I just let loose and went with the flow. When Sandy created her collage piece, I love it so much that it inspired me to create a mixed media collage. Then when my husband created his self portrait based on COVID-19, I had the idea of creating a COVID-19 mixed media collage self portrait.

I had so much fun with this piece that I’m entertaining the idea of creating a collection of mixed media collages. I’m thinking of creating flowers and animals, or I just might create more funky faces. I started out just making an abstract collage, but ended up making this portrait instead. It’s funky, on the weird and wild side, and was a blast to create.

What are some projects you are working on right now, and what was your inspiration?

Be well and be safe.

Cheers!
Lori
