Todays painting is a slightly larger version of an earlier study. I want to see what happened when I amped up the scale a bit. I'm thinking about doing an even larger one of this theme. The painting is almost black and white, but of course it isn't really. I like that.

Victor Vasarely was a French-Hungarian artist credited as the father of the Op Art movement, short for Optical Art. Utilizing geometric shapes and colorful graphics, the artist created compelling illusions of spatial depth, as seen in this work my figure is enjoying in a museum.

Painting Op Art really is a weird experience. The checker board kept on dancing before my eyes and I had to take regular breaks and rub my eyes for a minute. They don't call it Op Art for nothing!
