While still in bed thinking about what to say about this work my mind wandered about concepts such as discussing the elements of art, meanings of color and size.
When I measure this work on screen I get 438 X 219 pixels.
With as tape measure I get 5.5 by 2.75 inches.
On, twitter I measure 502 x 248 pixels.
The point: the size changes depending on how you are viewing the work. Prints of this work will also vary depending on the size of the paper and image size selected.
For this series of work I started with pen and ink work using various pens and inks, even twigs from a tree (the twig idea came from an art school exercise at Cameron University in Lawton Oklahoma courtesy of the US Army)
Behind the scenes:
My granddaughter is practicing guitar right outside my door "Here Comes the Bride." She is reading sheet music and playing without "looking at my strings" she said.
I popped downstairs for a glass of ice to cool my lemonade, grabbed a piece of jalapeno cheese and a Halo tangerine: breakfast.
Back to the article:
I scan the pen and ink work into my computer and convert the scan into individual vector items which I then use to make the final work. The computer is a great tool to adjust size, shape, color and line as well as work on how the final composition will look.
These series originally were restricted to 500 by 250 pixels so they could be uploaded to Twitter. It looks like the width can be around 525 pixels now, so I have been playing with this, but the width appears stable at 250.
This size shows automatically open on the Twitter timeline, so a nice shot of art to my followers.
So I close as my grand daughter listens to a piano version of Greensleeves.
