In the spring of 2007 I was flipping through a J.C. Penney’s catalog when I noticed some brightly colored bedspreads. The designs of course involved dots. There were also stripes, but the dots are what got my attention. I liked the bright colors.

After pondering how I was going to handle my design, I decided to divide my canvas up into fourths. I then picked four of the colors from what I saw in the catalog. I then played with colors to make my dots over the four sections. Anyway this is the result. After making this one I thought of a piece by Damien Hirst’s that has brightly colored dots on a white background.


  1. I really like this one. Happy circus colors. :D

    Thank you very much! : D

    I never thought of it as a circus piece. I guess clowns would look good in those polka dots, hunh?!?
