Code Red

When I worked on my red painting, the dot pattern clicked in a special way. It is my favorite one of these four paintings. This painting won a second place in an art show competition and the title of "Artist of the Month" in a peer voting art competition.

 "Code Red" marked a breakthrough for me. The process was a new way of painting for me. I was tired my surreal and expressionist methods of painting in acrylics. It was important for me to explore other ways of using the medium.

  1. I really like this one, Mo. It looks like a giant, spinning pinwheel. :-)

    Thank you. : )

    Interesting that you bring up a spinning pinwheel. The backgrounds of my earlier small dot artworks reminded me of a pinwheel pattern.
