My 4 Year Painting

This painting I started in 1997 my senior year of high school.  It took me four years to complete.  It is a painting in acrylic paints.  I traced my hand and then overlapped it two more times.  I used an overhead projector and blew my hand sketch up.  I then drew 1/2 inch squares over the entire paper.  I made one hand red, one hand blue, and one hand yellow.  I acted as if the hands were transparent, therefore wherever the red hand crossed the yellow hand it was orange and wherever all three hands crossed it was brown.  These pictures are a little big so be patient with the pages.  I thank Sam for the paper and all my art teachers for inspiration and teaching.
