Revisiting Old Series

"Skysquares 10" 24 x 24 acrylic on paper

When I got a call from a client in Denver I wasn't excited about doing a few new pieces of Skysquares, a series I had long since retired. I found new energy once I started them, splashing the sky colors, but tinting them to more current tints. Then I noticed they were grids!

Then when I did the grid overlay I decided on transparent interference colors instead of the opaque metallics I used in the past. It made all the difference. Now the grid of squares dances in the light and comes in and out of focus depending on the angle of view. I love them again!

I like the fact it's more about the sky than the squares this time. It's really good. Your penpal who never sees you, Janet
