Michelle you are going to have to post more photos. This is really busy and this is not what we are used to seeing from you. It looks like a lot of work and yes it could be a Batik. Good job

thanks moment.Ronald: free form batik maybe..I’m tired of round & brown, so I’m on a color kick. I’m sure some other flashy thing will get my attention soon, and just like a crow, i will pursue that!

By saying this has a Batik ” feeling ” , I did not mean to imply that the painting was stenciled or anything other than hand painted ,because I am familiar with the way you work.The connectivity between your # 1 and # 2 is evident ,but the abstraction of the interplaybetween the set mandala and the ” negative space ” has such a delightful camouflage effect ,very cool , randomness is not easily reproduced in a deliberate fashion . I’m still wondering about the ’ cross purposes ” inference as it relates to # three , I would assume it refers to more than technique ; ) what an interesting progression in these works .

moment: Working at Cross Purposes is the name of this particular negative space design.( check out my work here on LJ’s.) The volutes cross one way in the foreground and the other way in the background. So this is an airbrushed Working At Cross Purposes. I did not take “batik feeling” as a negative..it does have that look. When I think of batik, I think of , oh say, ferns on a colored background. This is random , no pattern white lines, & white differently shaped areas.

I am thoroughly enjoying the work you produce. I agree its refreshing to see something that ‘is not brown’. Also good to see you opted not to ‘imitation grain’ the finish.
I am reminded ( nostalgically) of the late 50’s, early 60’s. A period in design I love.

Not to contradict you, but my eyes are for the want of a better word, stuttering not dancing. Definitely a different approach and you are really applying your artistic and imaginative skills in a wonderful way. Thankyou for sharing.
