"the.united.states"

I looked a the image in the post directly below and the picture looks like a map of our nation .

An unforeseen tribute to Jasper Johns.

I am challenged by the larger size file - less proficient in developing compositional elements that pop off the page. Big pics are staid and eye movement reduced. It is inward versus outward - more tricks when an image more "garish" or grand - electricity makes it an easier whitewash.

More close-ups, nmow named after regions.


"north.west"


"mid.west"


"florida.gulf"

Really wow.
Mat to maps.
Even the colors seem to belong to each region---the light in the florida one, the inland feeling of other regiions.

I prefer your works to Jasper Johns, sorry Jasper John. Great grouping, wonderful texture and use of colors.

Did I miss the Southwest?

As I write this, the sun is coming up. And "loney dear" plays. In that environment I spent ten minutes looking at "the.united.states."

My state is united.

I guess it's time to get ready for work now. It's been great to start the day here. (Your inbox will be busy this morning.)

I love your work, John. Don't stop.
