4 Square Rural

9×12 in mixed media. As simple as this piece seems to be, it was fairly complex in execution. Lost track of the layers but beneath each square of color I started out very vivid and bright. I really love how the textures allowed some of the full richness of the under lying colors to show. I did have to knock down some of the peaks though to get a more uniformed look. The full body white lines in some areas show well too. Unfortunately this piece can only get full appreciation in person, as the photo can’t capture the subtle tones. This was a follow-up to “Neutrons and Fertilizer,” only taking the tones the opposite direction in values.It kind of gives a wintery feel, although I have seen colors this muted from above when you get a lot of sun reflection in spring time. You have to work at seeing the signature as I didn’t want to disrupt the feel of the piece, lower right hand corner.

  1. Looks like you might have been inspired by the tonal artists like Agnes Martin. If you don’t already know her work, I know she would respond to your Fields. Keep the good work coming, Carolyn Wagenseller

  2. Hmnn…a square is a rectangle; the reverse is untrue. Both are assembled of 4’s however…But I see greys in concrete cityscapes, browns for rural. Nobody has ever called me an artist, of course. But why do I need competence to sustain an opinion…none of our political leaders seem to have any in regard to management of the country…

    See what you made me say???

  3. Thank you for visiting my blog recently… that way I could find yours! These dad-gum layers are driving me nuts. I’m trying to learn how to use them in my photography, but not going well yet.. LOL Like your blog… Love the art!

  4. Reblogged this on David Emeron: Reflections upon Reflections and commented:
    One always wonders how people find each other in cyberspace. My art–such as it is, published or not, is quite not abstract, one wonders how one gets from there to… well…. here…. I remember having written and created all manner of abstractish things when very young. Perhaps it is my natural oppositional nature. Everyone, after all, since 1014 has been heading in that direction with a few notable exceptions–and there is, of course a bit of a revival of such things these days.

    But really, I’m just musing with no direction in particular. It’s just the way my mind tends to whirr along. Thanks for the visit.

    • My preferred style currently is abstract in nature but with that and the way my creative nature works I will bounce around…depends on what hits me…when my inspiration hits I get ideas as i go so the next piece most times is then in the cue…that is why i couldn’t write, too much drifting…but if you look through my works you can see themes i come back to over time…so far i have been at this fully for less than 3 years, fun to see the journey.
