Pueblo Layout In Black

Mixed media 12×18 in.  When doing a lot of my work I find working with a colored heavy paper part of the process, this one started as black.  (for those that might know him… professor Pal Wright… Mr. Wright,  I almost covered the whole sheet.) I did several under-layer imagines before I started covering the paper with tissue paper and then started working on top of that then more tissue paper then line and acrylic work. This was another piece that I let take me where ever it wanted…I just followed with my imagination and colors.  When observing after it was completed, I couldn’t help but get a southwestern vibe with the yellows and oranges. The line work made me think about layout drawings or floor plans. I really like how the acrylic colors pull all of the other tissue paper colors into this piece, making them fit.   I could get philosophical about the greens and nature, Indian culture and… but that would be BS…the colors work for me and I find this to be pleasing to look at, puts me in a good place.  Mission Accomplished!

JUST A TEASER of WHAT MIGHT BE

I have a show coming up and have been playing with the layout, course it will change again once all of these are framed and matted.  I am lucky enough to be able to show for a full 2 months, and I am toying with the idea of two different setups…one each month.  The hard part will be picking what  makes the available space.  If any of them really appeal to you leave a comment, at this point I can use the input.
