Earthspin Series
I have been captivated by recent images sent back to earth from the International Space Station. This series is inspired by pre-dawn skies, star streams, ice crystals, fire rainbows, atmospheric optics and the myriad of new discoveries shaping our view of cosmos. My work is entirely abstract, and from imagination, but while painting, I think of the tiny jewel that is earth spinning away in the solar system. I keep my paint fluid, so that it too has spin and flow, pouring it on, one layer at a time. Part of the excitement is to see how the layers interact in an organic way.
