i just couldn't let this one rest. after looking at it for a while, colors and lines and things begin to nag at me. so i have done some revising and am finished. this is not a true spot on image of the final, but it's close enough. the layer beneath is composed of chess pieces that i cut out of vintage wallpaper. it is difficult to tell, because of the way the image takes; in the bottom right hand area i placed the square, the piece i cut all of the chess pieces out of. in the top left hand is a circle composed of all the pieces, in a target like fashion. if you look closely, and imagine two armies of chess pieces squaring off underneath a bright and geometric landscape. conceptually it's a bit weak but for the most part, i am satisfied now with how this piece worked out. the addition of the horizon line really helped, i think. in addition to the lighter circles and paint/line touch ups. so next up. i begin my next piece (24"x48") for the aec benefit. i've got a plan and drawings and will begin tonight.
