Photo of the Week No. 41: “Paint It Black (And Yellow)”

October 11, 2018

This Photo of the Week is striking as an image that captures a special moment in time, as the paint on this petite, square canvas hasn’t yet dried. It’s fresh. It’s as if the artist is just outside of the frame pondering his or her next brushstroke, or whether the painting has reached its completion. The artist deliberately selected black and yellow to fill the canvas, and is generous with covering the block. The stripes and swipes in the piece make quite a bold statement in such a small space. Alternate titles: “Not-So-Mellow Yellow (And Black),” “Abstract Bee,” “Quaint Paint,” and “Madness on Canvas.”
