Green in various hues has become a favorite color recently.
The hard-edged tools I used for this and gel added to the paint for more body
are new for me and open up all sorts of possibilities.
Perhaps I’m entering my own “Emerald Uprising” phase.
Someone who didn’t know the title of this painting
said, “It makes me think of a hurricane.”
This painting started out to be light and airy.
But bit by bit, layer by layer, it morphed into a deeper realm.
A phantom cave. An abyss.
A place than can only be entered the way you enter the realm
of a carnival fortune teller.
Through a hanging curtain of beads.
What’s on the other side?
