Un-Oriented Amargosa, Panel #5

Un-oriented Amargosa, Panel #5 (west), 4 feet x 5 feet, Oil on linen, 2009

By the time I was doing the final work on this panel, I realized that I had the beginnings of great “V’s” and inverted “V’s” across the panels. This is the only one on which the inverted “V” is almost wholly contained — the others reach across two more more panels. These Basin “V’s” helped me make some sense of what I was going to do with color and horizontality, which otherwise felt chaotic.  It also allowed me to keep the horizontals while providing a bit of movement. Unfair, I know, but the movement is more like a dance than a goal. We aren’t getting anywhere with it. Except to the next panel, perhaps. –June
