Original Art ~ Woman’s Ideal of Man #3Here is a collage done on a small canvas. The intention was to lightly poke fun at ideas expressed in a book from 1901 called The Perfect Woman. The painted surface contains various images of men and machines. There is also a picture of a tiger and drawings from palmistry and phrenology. The textured surface was created by using gesso, discarded fabrics, and interesting paper fragments. Shades of ocher, burnt umber, and red mix together to create the bold colors.
