This painting completes the Red, White and Blue series. I gave this one more movement than the others, but still tried to maintain a certain flatness to the figure. I wanted the white in this image to represent a certain type of haze, smoke, dust or light that impedes progress.

A full day of art was capped off by visiting the SMOCA (Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art) where they had a sketching event in the galleries alongside a Chuck Close exhibit. It's quite amazing how much patience is involved in creating these prints. Here's my sketch using white pencil on black paper.
This is part of my Red, White and Blue series. It looks like this series is shaping up to be a statement on how unnecessarily complex everything seems to be in today's culture. What will we morph into? Can we keep up with the pace, and is it really necessary?
