This is an Easter greeting card inspired by the collage of Romare Bearden.
Each card is collaged on to heavy weight watercolor paper which is 5" x 7" (finished sized).
The background on each card was painted before adhering the eggs and edges of eggs.
Romare Bearden was a contemporary artist famous for his portrayal of life in African American communities. I watched a documentary about him and decided to try making some small collaged card.
The paper for the eggs came from art magazines so each egg is from a masterpiece but now decidedly different!
Here is a shot of my art table with the "debris" of collage art.
