Tandem Andy's

Warhol Collage                                    9" x 12"   

I am on vacation this week so I am posting my Paint Party Friday entry early. Plus, tomorrow will be my birthday and I hope to be out celebrating! I promise to make it to all of the artists' blogs at some point this weekend. I am entering two of my older pieces. I call these my "Tandem Andy's". They are two versions of the same piece. The first one is a collage of Andy Warhol. I used CitraSolv papers and acrylic paint on this painting. 

For this second piece I printed the collage out onto silk and adhered it to a  12" x 12" wood panel. Then I painted it with encaustic paints.  

 


I like both versions for different reasons. I like the colors in the CitraSolv papers and the effects they give in the collage. But I really love encaustic paint and the bold colors they brought to the silk. Plus I LOVE the splatter! ;)

Don't forget to check out the other artists at Paint Party Friday. It's always a treat to see what everyone has been up to this week.

Yep, I like them both, too. I love the color of the second one, but love the way his eye draws you in in the first one.

Sorry you're getting older! (hee-hee) But I turned 60 two weeks ago, and it's about time everyone catches up.

Happy Birthday!! An actual Party Friday for you!! I love both of these and would be hard pushed to choose a favourite as they do both have different qualities that I like. I hope you have a great day!!

Wow these are fantastic! What wonderful pieces done so differently. I have tried silk painting way back in art school and I enjoyed that would love to try printing on to silk one day :0)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY from one Taurus to another! I love both of these versions of Andy. I think the possibilities that good printers have brought to our art are amazing- I LOVE doing stuff like this!
Happy PPF,

Theresa said...

Love, Love BOTH!!! So interesting how the focal point is the same, but the materials create a completely different vibe. Wishing you a happy birthday and a happy PPF!

Annabelle said...

Both beautiful and interesting styles but if I have to pick one it's the first one where Andy's eye captures my focus.

Lovely work and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy Birthday! I've admired that collaged one before and think it is still my favorite. It has such great contrasts.

Heather said...

love this piece!

Sunshineshelle said...

Pam, this is great, I only recently found out what 'encaustic' was, love it!

ileana said...

Both are amazing and capture the intense-ness of Andy Warhol, and the colors work like magic! As Warhol would say, they're "bee-you-tee-ful!"

I've only sketched him, but now you've inspired me to paint him. He's on my list. :)

ileana said...

PS - Hoe you had a very happy birthday!! xo

Marlene said...

These are both awesome and equal to each other. Love seeing the different techniques.
Happy Birthday!

Denni said...

Happy Birthday!
Both pieces are striking, but I have a lust for encaustic work.

Paula - Buenos Aires said...

Cool to see two takes on the same subject.
Happy belated birthday. Wishing you a year full of love, laughter and art. :)

Pauliina said...

I hope you had a great birthday! Nice work you've done about Andy. I'm sure he would have loved it!

Sunny Lee said...

Happy birthday Pam~ And I love your painting!!!! Before seeing the title "Warhol", I could tell it's him.

Kristin Dudish said...

Happy Birthday Pam - I hope it was the best one yet!

It is so very cool to see these 2 different versions of Andy in such very interesting mediums... I'm going to have to look up citra-solv papers...

Enjoy your vacation!

Hi Pam -
I'm soooooooooo behind on blog reading that I just got to your latest post. I hope your birthday was great as well as your trip to Columbus.
I love catching up and seeing all the growth in your art. You are doing so many new and fun things.
I'm taking a local encaustic class in a month - can't wait. AND I'm gonna teach a beeswax collage class.
Keep up the experiments - they're fun to see.
