It is a lot of fun to experiment with small pieces. I had this idea that I wanted to try doing some work that uses partial images. How much of something do you have to see for it to be recognizable? Composition becomes more important than ever. Negative space is important. Representation becomes more like abstract composition.
These pieces are each about 5" square. The top one, which is my favorite of the two, by the way, is a little section of the drawing that I used for my piece called "Rice Bowl and Bird". The pear came out of my head. (Not that there is an actual pear in there, but the memory of a pear!)
Sometimes it is really nice to be able to work out an idea in just a few hours from start to finish. I'm looking forward to trying a few more of these.
I think these might be nice mounted on a larger square of mat board.
