“Red and Yellow” 1970

0040 Red&Yellow

Acrylic on canvas. 6′ x 36′.

Destroyed. At 36 feet this was my longest painting.  That’s me with all the hair at the far end of the painting.  The arc is a true catenary arc.  It was don by hanging a string from each end and tracing its shadow.  I did this painting in about an hour and a half.  That included photo shots by Bill Roseberry of the painting in progress. The yellow and red stripes are done with a 10″ paint roller on a broom handle.  So I’m guessing it took about 2 or 3 minutes to roll the yellow U shape and about a minute & 1/2 to roll the red L shape. The white was done by brush so it must have been about an hour for that.
