I seem to be dithering my way through January. However, a friend requested a painting and, after a bunch of dithers (ie emails that accrued to the point of getting their own folder), I hit upon a scheme.
Below are twelve 4″ x 4″ abstract paintings. They are all part of the Scheme. The scheme was to paint a painting, relatively representational, and then break it into these 12 abstracts.
Above is the batch of little abstracts, pulled apart, drying. They are all acrylic paint on silk and canvas.
So, if you are up for a bit of fun, look at the 12 abstracts below and try to figure out what they might represent when put together as a 12 x 16″ rectangle. I’ve numbered them, but they are not in any particular order. The answer (ie the photo of the Whole) is in the continuation.
I have updated the photos, eliminating the dreadful fuzzy ones. My apologies for making your eyes twirl if you looked at the earlier post.
The answer is beyond the fold of the post but no fair peeking. –June
Purple Vase, 16 x 12″, with individual pieces being 4″ x 4″, acrylic on silk and canvas, 2012
So how did you do? And were there any of the little paintings that you detested? or loved? Let me know — curious minds need to know these things………………………….
