Montage Mona Lisa
Painting - Mixed Media On Hardboard
The idea for this work just came to me....how cool would it be to re-create a masterpice in bright colors and things we use everyday. Her violet dress is actually made of newspaper...in fact, there is a section in the paper about Arkansas troops being deployed to Iraq. Her eyes were cut out of the cover of National Geographic...you remember that girl, I'm sure. The background is tissue paper mixed with glue and water. The lace of her dress is actually textured wallpaper. And...I saved the best for last....the blue "jewels" around the neckline of her gown were actually cut from a diet pepsi can! I had just drank it and figured I should use it too. Everything else, her face, neck, hair and hands are painted with acrylic.
*This painting is framed in a magnificant gold "old world museum" style frame that suits it beautifully. The frame alone was over $250, and the measurements given are the framed size.
