New Artwork

As you might recall, a while back I posted a design…thing I had created during a creative spark I’d had. Shortly after that post I started another design – this one ramping up the complexity by using a smaller grid (1/2″ squares), two colors (red and black), putting it on Bristol board instead of canvas, and using fine-point art pens instead of the Sharpie I used the first time.

Well, due to life getting the way – and the complexity of the project – it took me forever to complete the piece. However, on Monday night, I finally put the last pen to paper and completed my second design.

It’s a little smaller than the canvas one was (19″x24″), but with a smaller grid (the canvas used 1″ squares), so it’s a pretty good-sized piece. Unfortunately that and the design itself doesn’t lend well to photos to really show the scope. Hopefully this sort of “manual zoom” series of photos will give you some idea of what’s going on.

A little closer…

Finally, this is about as close as you can get…

As before, the piece is broken into quadrants, each symmetrical to one another. This time, though, I didn’t have white space separating the same color quadrants. Confused yet? Check out this photo to help:

Quadrants 1 & 3 are symmetrical to one another. Quadrants 2 & 4 are symmetrical to one another. But the whole thing is symmetrical down the center line. Does that make sense? Ok, maybe you should just come by my house and see it sometime. Or, better yet, offer to buy it and it can be yours.

Anyway, just thought I’d share since that’s what this site is all about – Me, Me, Me.

I’m hoping to get it framed and I’ll be sure to post a picture then to show you how it turned out.
