Just signed, an edit of a pastel I started in Apollo Beach in Florida. For this pastel I used a lime green-yellow atmosphere. Pastel started with mid-tone rusty orange paper, quite a long distance from that color to lime.
This color theory I am developing is an elegant way of solving pictorial problems. I am excited that it works so well with whatever I colors I program it with. It would seem like a game, but art transcends entertainment, it shows us ways of perceiving.
I am shocked how benevolent these colors and this pastel is, especially today. “When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” Edmund Burke.
I hope that my art and others like me will soon unseat the grotesque postmodernists.
