Versions 1 and 2

My friend, and excellent artist, Kathleen Volp, gave me some feedback on my extensive use of black and white, suggesting that 2 strong colors cancel each other out and suggested adding more white, even trying a monochromatic approach.

In the following pieces, untitled 1 and black & blue, her comments gave me the impetus to work into untitled 1. I loved the color and line in that piece but was never satisfied with it. Kathleen also surfaced something I hadn’t wanted to admit–I’d gotten lazy in my use of black and red.

Not sure black & blue is finished but it has more substance.
