This abstract exploration ended up with some artifacts from fairly early in the layering process that didn’t want to be covered up – flowers, a hummingbird and maybe the moon. This is definitely a case where the original is hard to capture in a photograph. When I paint this way, the textures and layers are quite challenging for me to show on line.
In my mind this one is reaching for “Monet meets Chagall”. 🙂
Tom wrote a really lovely poem that speaks to this painting beautifully.
coalescing currents curl from out of deeper darkness flowing down to pools that swirl with stillness beneath starless skies where hope abides and wing’d shapes may one day fly through the chaos life will strive to reach afar across this world where coalescing currents curl
Another tiny creature for a tiny painting. Hummingbirds are so sweet and we do see them around quite a lot where we live. As we plant more flowering plants in the garden I hope they will spend more time in view instead of speeding off.
Tom wrote this: (I love the hummingbird’s perspective he imagines!)
Precisely feathered, warmed by sun I sit upon a summer twig while in the trees the bumblers hum wishing they were like me: big!
