Code Green

Having completed four paintings, I set about creating four more. My goal was to have eight paintings that would hang in an alternative space corridor on Poydras Street in downtown New Orleans. An art guild I belonged to had been invited to hang art there on a rotating basis.

 In keeping with basic colors from the color wheel, I chose to make the next canvas predominantly green. As I continued my process, I found green to be a very difficult color. It was so dark. So, I contrasted green with colors from complementary and lighter colors.
