"Squares" Mixed Media, Continued

Okay, I finally photographed the new squares collages I did for my mixed media class at Ventura College. The assignment was to do a piece "in the style of" or "influenced by" a well-known artist. I chose Jasper Johns and tried to achieve lots of texture and color.

These two pieces work so well with the large squares collage I did previously, that I reworked it a bit and now it's becoming a series. I feel like I still have more to explore with this grid pattern.

Wow, indeed! LOVE your choice of colours, and the textures are way cool!
I would never have chosen JJ, myself, but these are wonderful!
No real surprise they work so well with your earlier grid. They also remind me of your yellow postcard.
This may be a series, girl, but ain't nothin' boxin' Lori Z in!
