"Is that a blue wave?"

At a certain point, I decided to take all of the broken, interesting pieces of wood from my pile of scraps and use them for paintings. At first, it was more just playing around - color studies, I guess you could call them; but I ultimately ended up liking them as paintings.

With this one, I'm really just thinking about a painting I did in my sophomore year and just running with that motif. All the while, however, I have no real end in mind. I'm just playing with how my way of working reacts with the wood and the shape of the surface.

I love this piece, but this (and the next post's piece) make hanging my work extremely tough to arrange. Triangles are the pieces that make or break the setup.

Take care,
