Three Little Pigs


for this image, I used mixed media: cut and torn paper (some paper was actually from watercolor images that didn't work--I never throw anything away!), color pencil, ink pen, and glue. I had fun with this & thought using different media from my norm was a good idea...I just let myself go, but I think collage is really not my thing!

I was wondering which one of us would get to post the Three little Pigs and I have to say this is wonderful. I love the fact that you took pieces that you had laying around and incorporated them into one mixed media piece. I agree with you and I also do the same thing. I never throw out a piece cause you might be able to rework it into something beautiful. Great piece. Excellent work.

i like where you're going with this, collage is not as easy as it looks. the fact that you recycle old artwork is very clever! the only thing i'd say about this piece is you need something more in the background either to make it look like it's not "floating" or to give it a bit more depth. you're brave...i've not been sucessful with collage, i always overdo it! good luck, you're headed in the right direction!

Impressive Linda!! I love that you've experimented with this piece! (And kudos for recycling old pieces!) :)

How fun! It made me happy that you enjoyed doing something different than what what you ordinarily do (which I think is needed to keep things fresh). And what an amazing idea to use things that didn't work somewhere else with this. I'll have to remember that. I think you did great with this. It was fun to see something different. (My illo is up and coming . . . just not painted yet.)

this is wonderful, isn't it great when art becomes a true exploration? I love mixed media and it works well in this composition.
