Alpha Mu

The round shapes I used in Alpha Iota encouraged me to paint more round shapes in this painting. Again, using a yellow background proved to be a tricky. I went with contrasting dark complementary colors in order to tame it. I included fewer round shapes this go-round.

  1. I don't know why, but the first thing that popped into my head when I looked at this was that this sort of reminds me of African tribal art. :D It's nice. I like it. Hope you are having a good weekend, Mo.

  2. Daisy:

    Thank you.

    African tribal art? Interesting take on this painting.

    I just play with the dots and see what happens.

    As for the weekend . . . I'm doing my best to distract myself from the tropical weather news in the Atlantic. Sure I'm staying on top of it. I just need to keep myself calm.

    Off to paint more . . .
