I began without any ideas at all today. I just painted a shape here and another shape there. What I had in mind was to surround each shape with a black moat, creating a maze. Paul Klee painted many paintings with this look (such as Intention and Comedians’ Handbill).
The shapes in this composition don’t have much meaning. In future studies, I wish to place symbols that have significance to me, and surround them with a maze-like structure. I would hope that the background would lead viewers’ eyes from icon to icon.
