Celestial Overtones

"Celestial Overtones"
20" x 24"
Oil on stretched canvas
I had been drawing a huge intricate canvas of about 60 rusted wagon wheels when I realized I didn't want to paint them. I wanted to paint something tempestuous, passionate and wild. So I looked at some photos from the Hubble and closed my computer and made my own version of what it looks like "out there."  

This was a profoundly satisfying painting to produce.  I did it in one sitting tonight. I figured out the process of making these marks with a Princeton brush and the tip of one of my fingers and had my way with the canvas.  I'd love to make more like this one.

    1. Yes, it was! And it's BIG! And I have three more canvases ready to paint more in this series! Thanks for looking and enjoying.
