When I make my lists of ideas I don’t always anticipate that a piece will document something that changes. The painting below was inspired by five designs offered by AOL’s AIM Profile pages. They were ones I used for my profile pages. But then AOL bought Bebo last May. In February AIM Profiles were forced to become Bebo Profiles.

The designs had masthead-like tops. So, I decided this piece should be made up of horizontal stripes. I then simplified the imagery for my painting. Of course the designs became dots too. The colors were a challenge to mimic. Although I wouldn’t normally group these five color combinations together, I’m happy with the result. The combined patterns are eclectic.
