Check out the entire Plaid Dove Collection!

In my initial vision of Version 4, the dove was going to be barely noticeable, almost like a "Magic Eye" mosaic, hidden within the brush strokes and color. But it ended up looking boring and flat, just like the abstract art I was trying not to do. So I turned the background into a monochrome of nice deep blues and lightened the dove so it really pops. Aside from my curiosity, there's another reason I attempted to do abstract art: because I fully understand that you're never going to walk into a doctor's office or hotel room and see Bill Murray as Steve Zissou stuck in the world of Groundhog Day or The Creature from the Black Lagoon as a contestant on The Price is Right or almost any of my Mod Pop Art. It's very specific in its pop culture references, and most is a little too weird. And that's OK - this art is made for myself and whoever else is out there who gets it and appreciates it.
