Veintitr├ęs

The second painting involves greens and blue-greens. Again my process for adding dots was very slow. I take great pains to avoid smearing the rows of dots. And, I used an "X" design to arrange the dots.

Ninth Year!

Today my dot art blog turns nine. Even though I have not been creating many new works, I still managed to create three new dot paintings for the Poydras Home Art Show this coming weekend. Naturally less painting has meant less posting.

Last summer a venue for my dot art, Ele Shoes & Accessories, closed. About the same time I was allowed to hang some work at The Rook Cafe. In September, I was invited to display a one artist exhibit there. The show is still hanging.

For now I'm at a creative crossroads. Hopefully I'll find a new direction to take my dot art. I cannot let my past process trip me up as I go forward. So, I anticipate some changes coming.

Veintidos

Over the weekend I finished three new dot paintings. The first of these three harkens back to the original eight with variations of orange and red-orange. My process for adding dots was very slow. I didn't want to risk smearing one set of dots as I added another row. I used an "X" design to arrange the dots.

Phase II, Third of Three

Today I celebrate the second coat of acrylic on this canvas. And now I'm gearing up to add the dots. Hopefully the final stage will go smoothly.
