29" x 29" acrylic on blended wood panel
At long last, the completed work. (top photo)
Since last Fall this piece has been constructed, deconstructed, sawn, sanded, reconstructed, dismantled again, then sawn and sanded again - got a bit carried away with the table saw.
What a study of color compatibilites, some sing while others fall flat. Always a mystery to me, though you know what works when you see it. Impressionist painter Claude Monet has been quoted as saying, "Colour is my daylong obsession, my joy and my torture."
The final direction reassembled the cut wood strips to create two blended panels, one shown above and the sister piece to be posted soon.
