May, 2012



I started a new painting with the intention of building it around a representational rendering of a specific moth which has a very strong black and white design motif, close to zebra-like.


Well, the painting took off in an entirely different direction and the whole zebra moth plan went out the window.


One design element I really wanted to include was the cottony out-of-focus centers of the gray squares, to see how that softness would interact with the hardness of other elements.
