Back in 2007 I went to a free screening of the film “Grindhouse.” In the middle of the film there were faux previews. Separating them from the two films were “Intermission” and “Feature Presentation” title animations. They were the same ones used back in the early 70s when there were still drive-ins in New Orleans. I remember the titles many times when I went with my family to drive-in movies.

For this painting I used the bright colors that I saw in the titles. I fragmented their revolving shapes into pieces inside four squares. In each square I mixed a bit of the bright color with a neutral color to make my dots.


  1. When I first saw this, before reading your description, I saw the head of a blue bear with a red paw and pink claws out trying to slash something. HA HA HA HA! OK, so I was way off this time around. :-D

    Even though what I saw didn't match your vision, I do like this one. I like the bright colors. This is another one that seems to show movement for me.

    Thank you. : )

    That's an interesting interpretation. The motion observation is closer. : )
