Spacewarp Miniature

I thought I didn't do much abstract art back in the 70s but I did quite a lot. Most of it was in miniature form which is why I probably don't remember it. But transcribing these old slides brings it back. This one is another nametag miniature blank. The purple area in the lower right was where the name was supposed to go. I don't remember whether this was sold or not and I never put a name on it. Note the "impossible" spacewarp ship with its filigree halo. I did all those tiny dots by hand. I had a lot more patience (and time) back then, and computers were still something that only a university could afford.

Spacewarp nametag miniature, watercolor and gouache on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 2 1/4", February 1978.
