Originally I set out to make the letters spelling "dotartdude" into a graffiti image. Along the way I broke up the letters into a grid; plus I added some large dots.

The same night I went to Art for Art's Sake I photographed some close ups of a desk that was decorated with pieces of glass. A light behind them dramatized the colors and details of the glass pieces. Below are three photos I took that night.

First I painted my canvas using a neutral color. Then I marked off the spaces with lighter areas of dots. To finish I took colors from the three different photos to make my own image.

In an earlier work I depicted a group art show of fiber artists. In picking out imagery for this batch of dot paintings I also decided to do one on the gallery where the show took place. Dutch Alley Artist's Co-Op is located in Dutch Alley which is accessible from Decatur Street in the French Quarter in New Orleans, LA.

After mulling over some photos I took of the gallery, I settled on the French windows and doors for a design. My background colors came from the exterior colors (orange and teal) and the logo colors (blue and white).
