Above the Fruited Plain
25" x 40"
Watercolor  (sold)
$  2,800.00
 
This aerial view of a festival reminds me of looking down upon grain and fruit fields from above. The painting is part of series that explores grids - expressing the complex and unexpected relationships of the smaller parts to the whole. I divided a collage into a contiguous arrangement of sections to use as reference. I painted the movement and vitality of the festival by playing whites against darks and adding dashes of vibrant color.
