Cornsilk and Jasper Johns

9×12 in. mixed media. American flags by Jasper Johns are so iconic in modern art and I felt like doing something in that light, but different. Look close enough and you can see actual cornsilk in the piece, thought the name was just a bit of humor only…huh!  Love the colors in this and besides using the cornsilk i had, i finally found a good use of my polka-dotted tissue paper. Mixed media artists can be such hoarders, for stuff they think they might need in the future…worked for me this time.

  1. I was thinking of trying to smoke corn silk as a kid. You have done much better with it. An artist I am not, colors I love, will be back to visit. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Thank you for liking my blog, Ken. It has brought me to your blog. I love your work. I am a beginner painter, who has always enjoyed working with colour, texture and design in the abstract.

    • this site (wordpress) is so amazing bringing people together from all over the world to share, inspire, and express ideas…if my site helps others to appreciate or create I feel i have done something worth while…thank you.

    • I pretty much have them over 85% of the surface. Cornsilk separated into single strands (the corn was pretty good eating also 😉 . to adhering them, acrylic gel medium does a good job…other areas tissue paper covers them, but they were already adhered….thanks for the kudos
