Abstractly Speaking

These pieces were included in a small group show at the Louisiana State Archives in Baton Rouge. The show was named "Abstractly Speaking." It was up during the month of August. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita prevented me from picking them up until just last week, I was happy to have my art back. :)

120 Colors

All 120 colors that came in the Prismacolor box were used to create this piece. So often artists are advised to only use a limited palette. In each square I blindly picked six colors to use until I went through the whole box. I then continued in successive rounds. It took a while to finish.

This piece has appeared in two shows so far. It also was in a competition at an artist meeting. It has generated a lot of positive feedback from artists and non-artists alike.

We See

The materials for this collage were handed to me at a lecture on Hannah Hoch in Boston. It was one of many seminars I attended at a national art teachers convention last March. The speaker asked 25 of us to make a collage out of the materials she put in a cellophane bag. She referred to it as a "Dada bag."
