Imagine this started out as a fully purple and lila painting; left side acrylics in sand, right side acrylics and plaster. It didn't turn out the way I wanted it, so I kept adding more and more paint, changing its color time after time until I found this image on top and I said to myself: "Yep. This is it!"
Large areas of coral reefs are suffering of this phenomenon known as 'coral bleaching'. Aquarists who enjoy a marine aquarium with living corals know how it feels. A tank filled with beautiful corals can quickly turn into a white graveyard. Luckily many projects to grow corals have started and seem to be rather succesful.
I love it when things 'just happen' upon the canvas. Look at it, it looks as if the painting is frowning. But, if you expected a great philosophy behind this Daily Abstraction... Sorry, there's no deeper wave then this...
It's the season for bugs. Flies hovering all over you. And some of us... well they are just not that into it. Insects. Especially the ones that 'bite'. Any small beast, having more than 2 or 4 legs is suspicious... and frightening. It may be a wasp!
"Halfway there"; not as cryptic as it sounds. I started these Daily Abstractions exactly 6 months ago. So halfway the first year now. Created a new lyrical abstract miniature painting every day, including a series of 4 on Valentine and a commissioned special,series ('Saga') of 10 in December.
Enough said. Back to work to finish up the next half year!
