"Evening Mint"  11 X 14,  Lori LaBerge  2018

There is a sense of soft and hard within this piece. Sharp angular shapes contrast with softer curves. The composition works well. The top angled line of the black and mint on the left leads to the left upper corner of the second black shape while the bottom angled line leads up to the highest point of the white section where the gold cuts it off bringing the eye down. This, in addition to the white and black contrast being so close to the mint, all leads to a focus on the small bright mint rectangle.

This can be seen below:

Yesterday was spent sifting through piles of wood to see what will work for a mixed-media piece. The wood will be cut into various geometric shapes. I have a general idea and will be sketching it out this week or next.
