elizabeth amento


Gah! It’s like a whole bunch of colorful, little celebrations exploding on heavy, white stonehenge paper… love, love, love! These are bits n’ pieces from the pages of Ladies Journal and Good Housekeeping, placed carefully in a sea of white space, drizzled with vivid, flowing gouache. They are the mixed media collages of San Francisco based artist Elizabeth Amento… they are also exactly what I needed to get this weekend started! KA-POW!
