American Drag (Mixed Material Assemblage)- by 

This piece was produced with a mixed material process on illustration board. I glued old, collected “Lucky Strike” packs to create the blue area, and the patterned red stripes. Then I added in selective areas of acrylic paint, dry brushing for an expressive effect. The skulls were brushed in with black ink and gesso, also the “pledge of allegiance” was written in only to be whitewashed over. Upon completing this work a little accent drawing was created on the computer. which helped to refine and finish the mixed material painting. The original dimensions of the piece are 19in. X 25.5in. It was completed in 2008.
