10×14 in. mixed media. A piece from my circle and rectangle period, note signature…not quite as embellished as current. Other than some acrylic this was done mainly with colored pencil and watercolor pencil. Actually if you follow the piece around it was somewhat mathematical in my selection of colors and sizing…then at some point i started adding parts that didn’t follow that rule but felt right. This was the piece that really made me feel good about staying with abstract shapes for my themes. It also presents some challenges as to presentation, due to my working to the very edge. When I mat a piece I always feel like I am hiding part of the expression and my viewers are missing something I intended to be seen. I have given some thought as to mounting them to a black or white mat-board, but haven’t felt good about any process/glue techniques yet. If anybody out there has any thoughts on this, please drop me a comment or line. My e-mail is email@example.com. Thanks
10×14 in. mixed media. Part of a series exploring basic shapes I did a year or two ago. Using tape like forms to isolate my colors and then circles to change the focus. The technique I used to make the sprout-like colors was very freeing. Taking several attempts to learn how to control, but isn’t that the joy of using new techniques/mediums.
