Abstract 101516 – Janus

I prepared the ground for Abstract 101516 by layering colors over a pre-washed sheet of 140 pound Arches paper. I used a heavy marker to create the first free-form design. Then I used oil-based pens for the more delicate shapes and the cross hatching. The three-lobed form inspired the placement of the eyes. I chose the subtitle ‘Janus’ for the resulting two-headed figure. Janus was a Roman god that was often depicted with two heads, one looking to the future and the other to the past.
