Fragments III #130 30"x30" gouache on w/c paper
Fragments III #131 30"x30" gouache on w/c paper
In Fragments III #130 I am working with a graduation of green and of red to orange. I am reminded of many mountains, like the Sandia de Christo of New Mexico, washed in the color of the sunset, as only in New Mexico, land of enchantment. And in Fragments III #131, the composition is interesting to me. There are color changes and value changes through out the work. There appears to be changes in the patterns, from small to large, because of these changes. It is funny when we work, we may have one thing in mind, and something else happens, just like life.
I am again working at the editing of the series of my work. I think the whole will be stronger because of the editing. But the question of what to keep and what to let go? Sometimes it is difficult, I see a work and I remember, what was overcome to complete the work, it may not be the strongest, and yet it is "dear." I try to be merciless in my decisions, though it breaks my heart to let "my children go, to know they will not go on, will not live." It seems each piece was "a trial by fire."
