"Hangin' Out"

No deep meaning here. This painting is about the simple things in life: hanging out with people and creatures whose company you enjoy.  This painting is is made of acrylic paint (on canvas), and collaged cartoons and doodles.   The first layer is the abstract rhythmic design layer. It's supposed to look like a comic strip, or old newspaper funnies in the background. In the foreground, I've cut out some black and white cartoons I'd created on a separate piece of paper, and collaged the on on top of this painting. I then went back into it and added some color (acrylic paint, felt marker, and crayon). I've made a series of this type of work, which I'll be posting soon...
