Foot in the Door 4

This is my work for the Minneapolis Institute of Art's Foot in the Door exhibit. My daughter and I got in just in time, about a half hour before they closed off the entry point. We stood in line for about two and a half hours, weaving our way through the new Target Wing up to the second floor where they were receiving the work.

The process for this was similar to my Mail Me Art piece. I designed the image in Illustrator, printed it out on plain thin paper, used matte medium to adhere it onto a 12" square canvas, and then painted over the background white areas with acrylic. For the green areas, I "painted" on color tissue paper using wheat starch, same process used by Eric Carle for his children's book illustrations.
