Still a few finishing touches to go, but I've mostly completed the first in a group of 56" high by 50" wide paintings. As I've mentioned in earlier blog posts, I've felt an undeniable urge lately to expand the size of my canvases, the result of increased confidence as an artist and the desire to say what I mean more clearly and boldly. I also feel as though the bigger scale will avail opportunities for display in more serious exhibition spaces. We'll see ... meanwhile, off to an exciting start!
ETA: It's interesting to note, for any of you color theorists, that the yellow-white inside the bottom row of loops and along the top of the canvas is THE SAME COLOR. I don't know yet if it's the lighting setup or an optical illusion created by the colors nearby, but they appear to be very different. The one at the top looks almost like an orangey-cream, and the one inside the loops looks like pure white.
