Color Chart

“Color Chart” is an original handcut mixed media collage, on 4”x4” heavy watercolor paper.

A sweet, simple monochromatic collage, “Color Chart” features a vintage catalog image of a young girl in “playclothes” or “bloomers” – reminds me of the awful one-piece gymsuits that I wore in elementary school! Perhaps, subliminally, the “F” in the corner is a reminder of how well I did in grade school gym class – LOL. The sumptuous sepia-toned background is made with a masking/removal technique, and mimics zebra stripes. Numbered squares balance on her head and float along the edge – also harkening back to grade school. A high-gloss protective finish completes this mini work of art, and it is ready to pop into a square frame to highlight any décor.
