I call this technique "painted photo collage". I used a photo I made of one of my paintings. There is a long process of preparing the photo involved, then it's mounted on the canvas and painted over in areas and sometimes glazed then embellished with stamping or crackling or bits of paper or music and lots more stuff. (the original painting of apron is in the collection of a local hospital) It's a lot of fun. This is a pretty nostalgic piece. I'll bet any mother would like to have it. Just click HERE to make a bid!
