WARP AND WOOF
24” x 36” x 1″ Acrylic on Fabric in Black Wood Frame
This title comes from an old textile term. The threads in a woven fabric are composed of the “warp” (threads running lengthwise) and “woof” (threads running crosswise) to create the texture of the fabric. Notice the pattern of the fabric in the lower corners. In the case of this painting, the barely visible pattern of the fabric subtly adds texture and depth. I just love the paint colors – especially the various shades of blue. By the way, my very first jazz composition was called, “Shades of Blue”.
