Lone Star #1 - A Texas Collage Painting

Lone Star #1 - 12 x 12 - mixed media

Above is the finished product. I'm calling it Lone Star #1.  I know, real original right?  I'm thinking that there may be more where this came from so I'm going to keep it simple and leave the door open.  I fiddled around with it a little last night and some tonight and I finally decided that I liked it just how it was......so I stopped.  Sometimes us artists don't know when to stop and we over do things.  The trick is knowing when your piece is finished.  Materials used: 12 x 12 gallery wrapped canvas, 1960's Texas map, 1950's Santa Fe train schedule, old book pages, acrylic paint, gesso, oil pastels, xerox transfers, and an old bingo card.
