Artist's Design Statement

Winning Bid:  $1,600

I am a professional pastel artist and photographer.  My plan was to take selected pastel drawings and photographs from previous exhibitions.  I wanted to use them as whole pieces, a 3×5 format or to take certain details and cut them out. They are ink-jet printed in color on Epson presentation matte paper. The “Blanket” consists of a patchwork of the finished drawings.  Isolated, cut out details from the drawings and photographs were used in different sizes and decoupaged in the other areas.

Once I began the project, my intuition guided me as to what should happen “next”. It was very difficult to plan it perfectly, but know in the end it looks great! Outdoor ModPodge is the decoupage medium that I used.  It is a water-based sealer and glue with a gloss finish.
