30" x 30".
Acrylic paint on canvas.
This painting can be rotated in any direction.
I was trying to capture a specific emotion--a punch in the gut feeling. That was the emotion it started with, but the time I was finishing it I started to depict cavities or mazes within the blue because I was thinking about the arteries in my dad's heart-- which was struggling after two heart attacks.
More important to me is what you might see in this painting.
Responses I have received include:
"It resembles a diya, or candle, for the season of Diwali"
"I see the elements-- fire, earth, water-- and our degree of control over them. There is still much unknown about air and water, which is why they are represented roaming the fringes of the painting"
Currently on exhibit at Sun & Moon Yoga studios in Fairfax.
