Take Me to the Mardi Gras
I chose this piece to highlight my year with Interpret This! because I felt it was my most creative effort vis-à-vis the inspiration photo, and I had the most fun with it. I was in the middle of selling my house when I made it, and it evokes that memory for me when I look at it. As far as I can remember, it was the first time I worked with a light subject on a dark background. I found I enjoyed working with darks. The colors seem so much more spirited against the dark background. It gave me the idea to do a jazz series, which will be my focus in 2011 once I get all this travel out of the way.
And while on the subject of travel, I must apologize for not commenting this month because I will be away.
