Backgrounds changed

On all these paintings, which are 20"H x 16"W, I put a new coat over the background, using a mixture of the main colors used in the collage pieces. I don't know if they are finished or not.

“Lyric” is an older painting I have reworked. It is 24x24”, acrylic and collage on cradled wood panel. I love how the yellow-orange brings the whole image to life.

Redo of an Older Painting

This piece had a very dominant red and black frond shape in the lower left and lots of red throughout.  I put cooler colors and it is looking great. More to come, but yum I love this stage.

Process Images for "Heaven / The Creative" aka "Heaven"

This painting is the fifth in the I Ching series. It refers to the first hexagram, called "Heaven / The Creative" in the Wilhelm/Baynes translation. Over a dark blue underpainting, I put in a horizon, and Orange areas in the sky.
This is the painting with yellow tape surrounding the image area, which will later become a white border.

Then I tried taping collage elements onto the surface, to see what worked best. I liked them but they did not advance the main intention, which was the brilliance of the heavens.

As I worked into the sky area, I pushed the horizon lower and lower, and added other colors to the edges of the sky, so that it intimates dawn.

The final version has a small strip of collage that is a reference to the series, in the lower right corner.

 "Fellowship" is the 4th painting in the I Ching series. It is inspired by hexagram 13,  "Fellowship with Men". The theme of threes is evident, along with various marks and a small amount of collage. The gold is all bright like the small area on the left.
