The Process

Vaquero (Tigers) is unique. Like all my collages, I began with an underlay of vintage papers affixed to a wood panel and whitewashed with acrylic paint. Details of the base underlay peek through the painted surface. (Look closely for musical notes in the background of this piece.) Usually, nothing else is painted and the rest of the piece is composed entirely of hand-cut, vintage papers. But, in Vaquero (Tigers), each of the paper tigers for the Vaquero’s “animal-print” shirt was individually hand-painted. I carefully crafted each and every tiger for this cowboy’s stylish ensemble.
