Connectivity: Port Clyde

Connectivity: Port Clyde, 8 x 6

I've used this image before, from my photo taken in Port Clyde, Maine.

Measuring 8" x 6", this piece was made for the Spotlight Benefit Auction, an event at SAQA's conference this spring in Portland, Oregon.

The tricky thing about the framing of this image is that the composition has to work in the 8 x 6 format, and also matted, with an opening of 6.5 x 4.5. A little extra planning was needed.

cropped to 6.5 x 4.5

The palette is inspired by the colours of a brilliant dawn. Again, I was influenced by the posters I saw at the Andy Warhol exhibition, held recently at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art. See below for an example, an electrifying collaboration by Warhol and Keith Haring.
