My second Nashville stop was the Tennessee State Museum where I saw the “Rau Collection: Six Centuries with the European Masters.” The show begins with the early Renaissance (1425) and goes through the mid-20th century (1955). Each room, of the exhibition, has a different color to denote specific artistic schools. I used the room colors for each stripe and background of my painting. Beginning with the “to” and continuing with this painting, I used a color and its tints. It an effect I now use in my dot art.

  1. This one makes me think of a circus or a candy store--the bright hues of childhood. Very nice.

  2. Pastels are pretty colors.
