Haven't had much spare time to paint lately, but here's 2 I did for a charity art show coming up in a few weeks (proceeds go to street kids). They are called 'Le Car' and 'Le Fromage'.

I used some old clippings from 60's magazines, so they are more of a colage type deal. I intend to add 3-D sparkles of cheese falling on the yellow lady, so theyre not quite done!

Input is appreciated, cause I think I will do more of these collages, tiki style. I have lots of pics of crazy luau recipes and such that could be fun to cut and paste on a painting...

Those are great! I tear apart all my magazines for the jewelry photos and articles to keep for my jewelry library. I've got over 200 file binders with historical info and images. I also save the fun images for collage. When I'm done with the mags I give the remainders to another artist friend who also does collage. Complete recycling!

I likey. Simple but affective. A winning combo. Its hard to find an art style thats easy and fun to do, but that is still good.

The green bubbles seem very Bossa Nova.

I think your paintings are great!! The "cheese" lady is the best. Do you have any more pics?

Looks pretty cool to me. What media was used? I'm originally from Toronto as well (26 years). Miss good hockey coverage but certainly not the weather. Place us on your email list: info@mmoderngallery.com

It's just acrylic on canvas and then paper glued to it. Soon to be cheese bits glued on too. Well, beads or sparkles. I can't resisit gluing things to other things. At least I didn't eat the paste in primary school.

The car is a Renault LeCar... remember those?
