Down Deep | oil on canvas | 36 x 40" | 2011
Shapes suspended in space. I love seeing it in nature, especially space that has a viscous quality, like water. Like fish in an aquarium. The deep blue and black reminded me of an ocean underwater scene. The orbs could represent a number of things, the sun or moon cycles, fish, sea vegetation. These associations are only suggestive, and were not planned but evolved as the painting developed. The titles almost always comes after the painting is finished.
