An anomaly in this summer’s series of new paintings, this started as a reworking of an early painting by Piet Mondrian that I admire. It became a two-part challenge: (1) keep the palette limited and (2) keep the composition active. I’ve been staring at it for a couple months now, but the longer I look at it, the redder and bluer it gets.
