This painting has been a long time coming. It has been on my easel for at least eight months but I can't really remember. Starting it was easy, but finishing it was another story all together. This is a terrible photograph of it, but I decided not to let that keep me from sharing it. I will get better photos soon, but you can see it in person at the Wood Icing Studio and Gallery.
Bubbling Up 32"x24" Vertical
It was not a painting with bubbles when I started it. I was thinking about creating alternative transitions from one section of my painting to another. If you know my work, you know that I often divide the space in my paintings with ledges of texture (Wood Icing). This time I decided to use imprinted circles instead of my signature ledge. There is no real deep meaning behind this painting. It is titled Bubbling Up because I think that is what these circles ended up doing. They bubbled up to the surface of my painting! This painting is wired to hang both horizontally and vertically because it was impossible for me to decide which way I liked it better.
