another new painting

Fever Dream by Tiffany Gholar. Orange and copper acrylic paint on recycled cardboard and paper I made "Fever Dream" back in the spring when I was sick with the flu and should have been at home in bed, hence its fiery color scheme and title.

One of my favorite parts of it is this section, which is made from a paper towel roll. I loved the curvature of the form and the depth it gives to the painting. It's something unexpected. In fact, I liked the shape so much that I decided to make a whole painting out of similar shapes.



So I saved paper towel and toilet paper rolls all summer.
I brought them to the studio on Wednesday.


I unrolled them and glued them down.
I can't wait to see what the whole board will look like once it is covered in them.
I will probably paint it pink.




That old Fillet-O-Fish box is perfect for storing glue, but now it's going to be part of another painting.
