Organizing Chaos- Show Piece

Organizing Chaos- Show Piece

This is my favorite piece in the show, it's title is Organizing Chaos and the title came to me a year after it was painted and I realized what most of my abstract work is about. I did most of these paintings that are in the show at a time when I felt life was very chaotic and I knew when I was painting that I was trying to accomplish something besides make a painting but I just couldn't pin it down at the time. Then one day as I was just mindlessly looking at this piece it came to me!
The painting is 30" square (unframed), acrylic on Arches #140 cold pressed paper. I was also working with color theory on this piece and limited myself to Red Orange, Blue Green, Yellow Green and red violet: a quadratic chord.

I got an appointment with a Podiatrist this morning so I'm going from dropping Tanner off at school to the doctor and then to the market. What fun?

Anyway, I'll be back later!

You know those really old stained glass windows? You look through the glass and everything on the other side looks wobbly and out-of-shape and coloured? That's what this piece reminds me of. It's lovely.
