"Color of Desire"
($40.00......6" x 6".....mounted on a 1/8" depth clayboard panel)
"Discover the path of your dreams through the rich color of desire." It is always good to examine where our desires are taking us. They can obviously take us in the wrong direction, but they can also help us discover how we're "wired" and what we're naturally inclined to do. Today is a good day to examine our desires and perhaps find the path of our dreams.
Multiple lines create multiple shapes. In this piece, there are varying widths of lines in different colors dividing the space diagonally. It doesn't get more dramatic than that. And of course, black and white plus one or two other colors works every time it's tried.
Letters are also made up of lines and when the black lines are connected to the black diagonal shape, it creates a strong contrast of black line work that is effective because of placement. Generally speaking, it is not a good design decision to have design elements floating in space. It is much better to have them grouped together so as to form a larger shape that creates another division of space. The key words are "generally speaking" since we have all encountered exceptions to that design point.
By thinking edge to edge...line to line...shape to shape, the art piece is much more likely to have a positive response and outcome. Just a few more things to think about.
