On March 1st I posted about the 'rust' trend in art-making. I featured the work of other artists and my first rust-dyeing efforts. Now 'Paper Traders' is having a 'rust' challenge. I LOVE a challenge and have used some rusty, and rust-dyed, bits to produce a mixed media painting.
RUST IS THE NEW BLACK
The painting is 30 x 30 cm on gallery-wrapped, wide edge, canvas. I'm saving it for an exhibition as it is one of the few works that I'm actually quite satisfied with. Perhaps that is because it is sooooo out of my usual comfort zone.
