  • "Three Gazanias 2"

         This composition followed the sample used for my Paint Party class, painting cataloged 0073.  To show students my technique, I painted on canvas in class.  The second version turned out better than the first and contains the addition of a lady bug on one of the flowers.

         The placement of the insect was chosen using the Golden Mean, or what is also known as the Divine Ratio.  I had been studying that compositional format and decided to use it. The bright red lady bug is in the “eye of the focal area” also corresponding to the perpendicular to the diagonal. This spot is one of four that naturally draws our attention.

         I had a lady tell me when she played poker at a local community center, where my painting hung in a two month show, she sat and stared at it, and in particular, the lady bug.  I felt that was very good confirmation the Golden Mean method really works.  What I want in my artwork is for people to be compelled to look at it and want to keep looking at it.
