On another visit to the Newcomb Art Gallery at Tulane University I viewed a show consisting of 125 works on paper that came from local collections in New Orleans. A the time I drew a few simple sketches from what I saw. Since three years have gone by, my memory of the show is a bit fuzzy. I'm dependent on the drawings I made.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

After selecting the designs I wanted to combine, I made dots on a background of beiges and ivories. The result reminds me of looking at markings of ancient cultures and wondering what was intended. I didn't worry about the original intent of the designs. My concern was finding unusual works from the show.


  1. Yes, it reminds me of ancient cultures too. I like it.

    Thank you.

    Some pieces just go a certain direction.
