Adobe Sun Dance

<–Back to Fiber Art Gallery

Adobe Sun Dance depicts an old adobe at Sky City on the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico as the late afternoon sun dances through viegas onto the exposed adobe bricks. This dance is emphasized here through the unusual use of color. I worked around the color wheel starting with violet at the top and ending with yellow-green at the bottom. Notice how the sunlight color becomes the compliment of the color of the surrounding adobes.
