"Thank You, ManRay" is based on a photo by the artist/photographer, Man Ray. My collage is done on stretched canvas and is 24 x 24 inches in size. Starting first with the yellow oxide base, I collaged different papers, labels, stamps, and the like. After this step had set-up, I painted the figure using a "half-tone" concept allowing parts of the collaged elements to show through. The entire painting/collage is sealed using a glossy acrylic medium.
