Monotype with colored pencil and collage
23" x 19" x 1.5" framed
I had just done a piece using gingko leaves that was entirely in red and so in this one I wanted to go in a different direction, therefore the name "Not Red". I used a fan motif to try to anchor the exuberance of the gingkos. The gray/green collage paper around the edge is a favorite Japanese paper that also uses curved forms. One stem in the upper left has escaped the discipline of the fan and floats away on its own journey.
