Although there is some dark green blended in, this is a monochromatic painting. Cold and warm reds intermix throughout the composition. While I’m becoming less concerned with the recognition of the form, I am focused on articulating the form; modeling sculptural form. At times I placed this painting on the floor so I could work from all sides. Drips from the early stages when the painting was upright can be seen peeking through in places. American History influences the subject and title of this work.
