All of a sudden I've been struck by the idea of using gray backgrounds. I can't remember exactly how it happened. I think it was a combination of looking over the work in my studio and seeing Colleen Cox's. I mention this because it wasn't until seeing her work that I gave myself permission to go ahead and have this idea of doing a group of gray backgrounds. Why do we have to get permission? Isn't being an artist a good enough reason?

You've used the gray beautifully, the other colors have become so rich with it's use.
