Manyunk Arts Festival

Hope and I went to the Manyunk Arts Festival today. Most of what we saw was the usual "crafty" kind of art, but there was one artist we both loved. He did these amazing collages over paintings. Beautiful composition (very geometric) and just this incredible balancing of elements. My words can't really describe what he accomplished. I did three collages tonight, inspired by his esthetic sense, although there's just no way I come even close to what he produced. Part of what really got me was the quality of the execution. He did his collages on wood, rather than canvas, and uses a heavy varnish to seal everything. I'd love to be able to accomplish what he did. . .  Posted by Hello
