Code Blue

Eventually, I was painting four of these 22" x 28" canvases simultaneously. This painting is very similar to "Code Purple" in pattern and dot shapes. I repeated the columned pattern on the sides.

 When I began to think about a name for these paintings, I thought of "Code Blue." Around this time a color code had been introduced as a warning system for level of "terrorist threat." Also, around this time my mother, who had undergone treatments for breast cancer, ended up in the hospital. Anyway, the two concerns helped me name my four paintings.

 In choosing my colors I made a point of including colors from the other paintings in addition to the predominant color. Many people have commented on these works looking like quilts. In fact some quilters have come up to me to talk about these paintings.

  1. It does resemble a quilt. Very nice job with this. I like the way you used the colors. :-)

    Thank you.

    Color is my biggest obsession in art.
