In Progress Mixed Media Painting

 I am working on a large canvas.  First, adhering some patterned papers and then adding paint.  I am going to add a lot more paint, bright colors and then white, to tie it together.  I have a long way to go before this is finished.  The image is a photograph I took at our farmer's market in town, printed on a thicker canvas-type paper.  After I am finished painting, I will remove the adhesive backing and flatten the photograph to the canvas.  Below is a detail of the painting.

Nice. Reminds me of Sarah Ahearn Bellemare's work. Were you inspired by her?
