- The idea for COLOR BRIDGES came from many sources. Portland State College 1962,Professor Frederick Heidel's first painting assignment was to make a grid and explore mixing colors to arrange on the grid to see how they would look. Moving these painted pieces of paper on different backgrounds bring back 4 years of studying painting with Heidel. Each arrangement I have made are like his assignments. They have a goal of basics while allowing the emotions freedom. Another source was Professor Mary MacIntire at Western Washington University who was a member of Fiber Design and I had the honor of photographing for a statement about her process. She used to move around pieces of colored paper to design her fiber works.

My right arm is bent at the elbow at 90 degrees and held firmly while the left moves. The closer the arm is to a straight line the smaller the image is in the box formed by my fingers just like a camera viewfinder. In addition a 21 box grid can be made by spreading the fingers apart and flicking the left wrist to lineup with the left arm.
At the Lima Anthropology Museum there is a diorama display of what anthropologists think Mesoamericans' camps were like around 14,ooo B.C. Most of the activities were self explainable except one man wearing an animal's head disguise. He was facing the wind break enclosure. He appears to be sizing up a distant object. He could be measuring where to put another support pole to add to the enclosure or judging from his posture. He could be roughly gaging the speed of movements of people or animals on the horizon.
