Dots, a Lot of Dots!

"Dots, a Lot of Dots!"
24" x 30"
Acrylic on watercolor board.
Here's another piece from a collector. I made a device that resembled a Q-Tip out of fabric and dabbed one dot at a time to create this geometric image. The dots are layered one on top of another to create each colour. It would have taken many boxes of Q-tips and a lot of fuzz removal to do it with the commercial device, but this took only one, carefully made tool and no residual lint. 

Thank you for your patience while I paint house portraits.

Dots a Nice Cabbage

"Dots a Nice Cabbage"
24" x 24"
Acrylic on wrapped canvas
At an early age I was fascinated with all the extra "fabric" around the hem of each cabbage leaf.  Still am!  They're built that way for our entertainment, right? 

I Photoshopped the cabbage photo for this painting so it wasn't simply green. Then I painted it with a Q-tip.  Well, actually with some Q-tips.  Okay, with a box of them.  Then I covered the tip of a fresh swab with a one inch square of pantyhose.  It made a dandy dotter.  No fuzz, no stragglers, no ruffled dots.

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Daily Paintworks auction.
