I made this series in my Fall 2012. We had to bring in patterns, things from the department store, and food wrappers, and use other paintings arrangements of space and things to create 3 works.
So the flowers are from my Betsey Johnson purse. There are a few food wrappers in there from animal crackers and lindt truffles. There is a switch plate, a tile, some keys and a night light (that illuminates the solar system) from the hardware store. The mushrooms and clouds are from fabric on spoonflower. And we were also told we could bring in the toy from our previous project (my worm), so he’s in there too.
It was pretty fun to take these unusual objects and combine them. The first painting is 36” x 48”, the square is 16”, and the long one is 12” x 36”, so they all vary.
