This painting is 24×36 mixed media on wrapped canvas. The composition in Transient IX feels different because I used a total of four mesh shapes. Previously, I had used an odd number of shapes such as three or five. Odd numbers of images, shapes, etc, are more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. My challenge was to arrange the mesh in a way that still implies odd numbers. One mesh shape is set apart from the others by a large orange space, which creates two odd-numbered groups of mesh. My hope is that the eye will respond to each odd-numbered group within the painting; keeping the work aesthetically pleasing.
