Last Of The Tondos... Or Not...
Stacking the peeled palette paintings isn't a good idea as they tend to stick together. I store them between sheets of paper after the edges have been torn/trimmed. If I was into making art books they would be good fodder as it's fun to browse through the 'pages' of the folder. The trimmings themselves are begging to be used in some artful manner. I probably have a bucketful saved back. It would be easy to see them used to wrap and decorate poles or hiking sticks but I'm hoping for a better brainstorm.
This image shows how some look with the edges hanging on... adds a bit of dynamism that could be explored. A comment in the last post compared the possibilities to Kandinski's "Farbstudie Quadrate" and that composition in grid format has crossed my mind but didn't really take hold... I really like for them to stand alone.
In "Three Of A Kind" you see that I did have a bit of fun comparing orbs. The whole tondo project is vintage 2003-4... haven't worked it lately, but am still stirring it around in my mind.
