The work of Mississippi painter Andrew Bucci is fascinating to me. Yesterday, I was procrastinating by searching the internet for some color that would spark a bit of creativity. Andrew Bucci was on my mind because his work came up in a conversation the day before. I found that spark in one of his yellow paper pieces from 1964. I was not only fixated on the color of his piece but in his use of graphite pencil. I used graphite in mine to out line shapes on the top of the composition. I ended up creating a pair of yellow paintings that now I love almost as much as Andrew Bucci's. They kind of make you want to sing zip a dee doo dah! Not so bad after a week of rain everyday with more rain coming tomorrow.
