Anna Karenina series of prints by Gretchen Kelly, New York Artist

This is what I've been up to lately....little paintings based on the recent movie Anna Karenina. I was inspired by imagery from this film and painted little paintings which I then printed on vintage pages from a 1917 book that has been
 in my possession for years waiting to have a new life. 
These repurposed pages give an antique quality to the imagery. 
Each page is different and as delicate as butterfly wings. 
I am offering these pages on my Etsy shop for only $12. each. 
The bottom image shows the actual book from which the pages come.
I will be adding more next week.

Revisiting the past: Collage Nudes by Gretchen Kelly, New York Artist

SOLD


I did all of these several years ago and was looking at them recently. I have been creating collages for a Facebook group during the month of August. I have always like mixed media and painting onto surfaces that are rough and altered. These four make a nice group. 
If interested in purchasing, click to contact me. The top one is already sold.
