Life on a



This was my summer into fall painting. I started it about a year ago and it never was quite right. So it just sat in my apartment and I'd stare at it. I kept wanting it to have a greater sence of lightness and space. This past summer was really hot and I would place the painting on my roof/porch area and pour a puddle of water upon it and drop white pigment into the puddle and allow it to dry. It was a very slow process and the painting changed and grew slowly like a plant. Originally the painting was of sea organisms living on a glob of oil.
