Here is the second in my Yupo Petroglyphs series. I just love working with all this texture. A friend at the Art Club yesterday gave me a strip of what is called Sequin Waste. It is what is left when the machines punch out sequins and is like a round mesh. It works for both negative lifting as well as positive stamping on the Yupo, neat stuff. Thanks, Betty!
I don't know what I would do without my generous friends since I painted this in this size (12x22) to fit into a frame (19x28) given to me by another friend, who had a number of large metal frames given to him that he couldn't use so he shared them with several of us who were very pleased to get them. Thanks now go to Woody! The frame is a coppery metal, which should look great with these colors.
My goal for this one was to make the Kokopelli's and other figures sort of hidden among the texture so you have to look for them to see them. This Yupo is great fun to work with and makes for a nice change once in awhile from my more controlled efforts to create something realistic.
