This is a mixed media piece I did for the "Scavenger Project" an art project organised by Art House Coop. The prompt they gave was "alphabet soup" and this was my response.
It is a mixed media art work on a vintage book page. I drew with pencil and painted with acrylics. The words have been written with white souffle pen.
The words are imaginary dialogue I wrote using the story that was on the vintage book page. The key words are in the soup in the ladle. I enjoyed doing this page. It was nice to do some drawing and painting again rather than collage. I liked the old page and the text as a background to start from and the double prompt of the words on the page as well as the prompt from Art House Coop.
I am interested to see whether any of my submissions will be printed in the "scavenger project" book, but it is not due out till next year, so I will just have to wait!!
