- 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.

Abstract Watercolor "Color Bridges" temporary arrangement #4
The box is recycled with my painted papers. Each of the eight sides demonstrate goals for the arrangement of papers on the tile. Pictured above to the left is a construction showing volume. Right: illustrates a bridge of colors transitioning from green to purple.
