I am so happy to have finished my newest painting just in time for my solo show at William Hill Gallery this weekend. I decided to take a new approach to making my pod texture and created shapes that are more uniform and not as deep. Instead of spending my time filling each one with solid colors, I was able to focus on mark-making. I returned to a motif I used long ago in abstract drawings, curved and wavy lines. They pull the image together like a floating web.
Dancing Ribbon Nebula
acrylic, latex, and ink on cardboard

While studying for the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire audition a few weeks ago (sadly I was not chosen to be on the show) I caught up on Neil deGrasse Tyson's Cosmos. Parts of this painting remind me of nebulae, hence the title.
