(.jpg) A digital replica of a color painting that I created in 1976 at the University of Minnesota.
In 1976 I painted a 40" x 40" color composition to finish a color-design class. I painted squares of canvas-covered wood with values of blue and orange.
My first try was a small painting, about 18" x 24" in size. It was a blue-and-orange color squeeze, but it looked too small to be a final project.
I worked for several weeks to make the work, covering wood blocks with canvas, attaching them to a pressed-wood base, buying and mixing the values of blue-and-orange paint, and applying the colors to the canvas blocks.
The finished painting attracted the attention of the design staff at the University of Minnesota, as the chair of the department stopped to look at the painting.
The .jpg file that I am displaying here is a replica of the large painting, which I have stored at home. I displayed the painting in my design-and-photography show at Muddy Waters Cafe in the 1990's.
