Lush Life
Epson 3000 ink jet print, Somerset Velvet Enhanced, 13 x 13 (20 x 16), 2005

In Crisscross and No Chaser I used compositional rules that tended to reduced the total number of colors. In Lush Life the layers of geometry (shaded diagonals and four-color solutions on the original tiles, and rule-based colorings of the merged shapes obtained from the original tiles) all affect the color, through subtractive, additive, or logical operations.
