Felicitous Acrylic on collaged text on canvas, 6"x6"

Felicitous-LeahPalmerPreissAnother in the probably-not-so-mysterious series that began with Malinger.

It is felicitous indeed that Illustration Friday’s word this week is “tail”– this fellow not only sports his own fine fox tail, but also holds a bunch of foxtail grass. Also featured (though tail-less) are foxgloves, some glowing foxfire mushrooms, & some faux-foxing around the edges of the paper.

Original Painting ~SOLD~

      Thanks, Clara! For these pieces, I scan the text, layout in Photoshop, then print on archival paper. I add a thin wash of acrylic with some texture for a ground, then collage the paper to canvas. That’s when I start the real painting. :-)

      Sometimes though, I add so many layers of paint that the text disappears, so I do occasionally repaint the letters!
