And Two Makes Four

I'm going to be replenishing my art at Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale and am making a compact package of two 11"x14" panels with two 6"x12" panels nested inside them. "Desert Bloom" and "SMoCA Loca" (shown in earlier posts) will be going to Arizona along with these two new pieces. I went back to my previous method of cutting rectangles for the piece called "Gathered Here" with all the small cacti around the tall saguaro. Doing that made me realize how much more I prefer my year-old method of cutting strips of imagery! (I think I'm going to devote myself to that method for the foreseeable future and push that idea using wider strips for larger pieces.) This newest 6"x12" is called "Almost Ready" and my friend Bob pronounced it my best piece ever!! He said he can see it as a work 6-feet tall... hmmmmmmm.
