My Mixed Media Collage Painting - “Darting To and Fro #2”

As a mixed media artist there is a story behind every abstract collage.

In the next installment of my mixed media artist blog series about the inspiration behind specific collage art pieces I describe my interpretation as the mixed media artist of the abstract collage art piece “Darting To and Fro #2". While the overall theme behind my mixed media collage is highways and how they mirror moments we encounter in our lives each specific collage art piece has its own meaning that I tried to capture as a mixed media artist.

This next mixed media collage painting, “Darting To and Fro #2” has four pathways darting about the picture plane. They all point inward because the reachable goal is the same for all the arrowed paths. Each way can dart about the field searching. Interesting collage work decorate each one with textures of circles, spirals and crescent shapes using varies mixed media. I made the decision as a mixed media artist for it to be colorless in order to show no favoritism for any one of the arrows. No color becomes more important than another in this abstract collage piece.
