Both Chroma. Gray. and Chroma. Cool Blue. just sold! It is very gratifying to see the two paintings set in a space seemingly designed just for them.

I was further experimenting with vertical lines, and came to see the vertical lines in Chroma. Cool Blue. as "ghost lines." Lines that existed in the palette-triangles then coalesced. Now these lines seem to  float over or through the surface of the painting.

Chroma. Blue. Gray. is now titled Chroma. Cool Blue. As I continued working on this painting it was no longer blue gray, but cool blue. The vertical lines are making interesting ghostly striations.

Chroma. Gray. Blue. continues to progress.

As a painting develops, there always comes a point where additional palette-triangles need to be made.  That point is reached when I find there are no more existing palette-triangles that fit the section of the painting that is being worked on.  There are always unused palette-triangles that can be used in different parts of the same painting, or can be saved for another painting.

I think of Chroma. Gray. Blue. as a companion to the previous painting Chroma Gray. I am continuing to explore horizontal and vertical lines.  

In both paintings, colors run horizontally, and graphite "drawn" lines run vertically. In Chroma Gray vertical lines are quite delicate, almost like woven fabric, here the vertical lines are bolder. Assembling these paintings, and especially Chroma. Gray. Blue. is complex--horizontal color lines and vertical graphite lines are placed at the same time, being that these qualities are inherent in the palette-triangles. Once the triangles are placed and affixed, no new color or lines are added to the painting.

Chroma Gray is a serene contemplation. I experimented with the construction of drawn lines and painted color-loaded lines. 

Chroma Gray can now be seen at Gallerie Citi, Burlingame, CA.

Have been working on Chroma Gray  (24" x 24") for about a month. This painting is a departure for me in that I am working with less "color,"  a gray palette. Instead or in addition,  I am exploring the subtlety of line--horizontally directed color juxtaposed to the verticality of "drawn" line.

Last week I finished Composition. Yellow. Blue. On the left is the space for the last two triangles. And below, the last two triangles have been fit into place. 


The next phase is to spray the two panels with many layers of fixative and then many layers of a U.V. protective.

Composition. Yellow. Blue. is almost complete.  Here is a recent image taken in my studio.
