VELOCITY by Michele Sudduth
VELOCITY is a blast of color that accelerates your vision through foreground and background of hot and earthy colors. According to artist, Michele Sudduth, “Painting VELOCITY felt like assembling a jigsaw puzzle with one significant difference: with a jigsaw puzzle, the closer you get to completion, the easier it becomes to find the piece that fits. However, discovering the colors that fit VELOCITY became more complex as the painting progressed.”
