New Year, New Directions

I was honored to be chosen to show some work at the local theater. I have been to plays there and thought it would be fun to do large panel "people" to hang on the walls, as if they are watching the play also.
I cut some canvas into panels and made pockets for dowels on the top and bottom to hang the pieces with. Then I went to town with gesso, texture and collage. I used anaglypta wallpaper also. I did a random free hand ink drawing and picked up the panel so the ink would run in odd ways. Here are the initial panels....

Here are the finished panels.....

I am hooked on these, love to work large!
