Spiraling Back

I'm loving this last/optional set of exercises in Lesson 5 of my Dynamic Composition class, which opens the door to revisiting prior assignments and trying my more experienced hand at them all again. I can feel myself integrating many bits and pieces. I re-watched the very first video of the class and understood it so differently from back in January!

Today I made two pieces, each of which incorporates a soft grid painted format as background, uses collage in a grid composition, taps into my stash of handpainted collage papers, and utilizes line as a unifying element.

    1. Thanks, Sheila. Great idea to call them aerial landscapes. They feel like abstract Google Earth snapshots.

    1. Yes! It was really fun to be aware of how I've developed in the first half of this year, and to see how that development played out in these particular pieces.
