Title: Dry Me in Black and White, 2D Mixed Media/Collage
This self-portrait collage is made from dry paint chips. I took a picture of myself using my iPad. I wanted to create an interesting self-portrait, by using various value pieces of dried paint. I mixed up various values of grays, black, and whites and painted it on plastic. After the paint dried, I ripped up the paint and eventually put it on the collage. I like the textural quality because of the looseness of it. I also liked how the self-portrait captured me as a person.

Award: Excellent

Instructor: LeAnn Atchison
