Homage to Color
This painting is a tribute to the Emerald and Chartreuse greens that I just love. Also, I am really moved by the number of artists who are painting singing writing and expressing equality at these important times, thus the name, Homage to Color. Beneath this painting was a painting of our local Cimarron mountains. But in the end, I was more interested in painting over it, and using it as a background. I started by spray painting letters, and then drawing all these beautiful objects that were leftover from a class that I taught. They were sitting on my counter, and so lovely I had to paint them. In places, you can see some subtle pinks that remain from the earlier painting below.
