Picky Eater, Mixed Media...

My partner Neil is the "inspiration" for this piece entitled "Pickey Eater". Long story short, the inspiration for this piece was the very long list of "forbidden foods". So I have spent months with the seed of this idea. This piece is about 3 feet long. I incorporated: Painting, Drawing, Collage and Assemblage using, Acrylics, Oil Pastels, Pencil, Grease Pencil and an Antique Level & Sorry Game pieces.
The original concept for the style is called "inchies'. The concept is to have inch squares drawn, etched and or painted onto a substrate then images are added, painted and manipulated.

When finished the effect is not unlike an Elemental chart. Somewhat gridded and very graphic.

Karen -- it's fabulous. Not only is it funny, but it's GORGEOUS. Like u. But I love the rulers, the food pix, words,letters...all of the elements that make the chart. PERFECT.
