About this painting:
"It’s like a Rorschach test! Everyone should post what they see in it. To me it’s a mantis shrimp exploding (upper right- black and grey cosmos) into a complex and gorgeous moth." ~ Nicole Pelletier
Newest pieces: painting and celestial mason jars
16" x 20"
watercolor, gouache, pastels, colored pencils, spray paint
words in the piece gratefully borrowed from Chris Way, author and musician
A friend saw the mason jars I painted several years ago on my site and asked me to make a few for her. Here are the results! Painted jars were inspired by the omega nebula.
New piece to welcome spring...
It's not often that I totally swoon over one of my own pieces, but this one turned out (unexpectedly) so well that I'm doing just that! Well, not literally swooning. I'm actually in my cube at work. But swooning sounded like much more fun.
I'm thinking I will want this piece to be framed because I really like the contrast of the grey behind the piece.
Here are some details from the piece as well.
(also: special thanks to the creators of #the100dayproject -- it's a challenge that's given me a good kick in the ass to paint more!)
