A few years ago I attended an opening reception for an exhibit featuring works by portrait artist Jean-Joseph Vaudechamp (1790 - 1864). It was held at the Williams Research Center located on Chartres in the French Quarter. I wanted to find a way to remember that evening with a dot painting. Over a period of time I ruled out trying to mimic a portrait.

Eventually I reviewed the photos I took that night. After mulling over them, I finally honed in one that included a hallway with a large image of an eagle in gold at the other end. After some more deliberation, I decided to simplify my painting to a gold circle on an orange background.

  1. Mo, I think it is so neat how you can take a picture and pick out certain elements to put into your paintings. Nice job with this. :-)

    Thank you.

    It took a lot of mulling over before I narrowed down what I wanted to do.
