This weird little abstract sold to one of my Patreon supporters when it previewed, and got to skip the gallery experience entirely. It’s definitely a painting in which different people see different things, but the swirling layers of color and texture are certainly mesmerising.
It started as so many things of mine do as a background painted and left to sit on a shelf, while the back of my brain processed ideas for what to do with it. Eventually I went to pick texture out of the color and then add color back in to the texture with shades of purple and a hint of blue. There’s even a touch of shimmer along the right side, which will subtly shine in the right light.

Bold splashes of burnt orange spark through a field of purples, from a soft mineral lavender to a deep violet black. A loose, liquid boundary almost contains the color like a frame, but there’s splashes all around, joyfully bursting free of the confines of geometry.
This is a gorgeous abstract, bright and warm without being too obnoxious, and would go elegantly in any room.
Above, you can see the delicate lace formed as the colors mix and blend, rust to peach, purple to paper white. Below, the culture waits behind glass to be examined, appreciated, and enjoyed.

In the violet depths of some mysterious sea, light filters down to find shining octopuses, waving tentacle fronds, and frolicking jellyfish.
Ultraviolet is the Pantone color of the year, and somehow the word seemed to fit this mix of vivid purples and shining metallics. There’s a sense of more going on than the eye can see, life just around the corner of vision.
What lies deep in these oceans?
Above, you can see the iridescent blue and duochrome mauve highlights on the floating jellies. Below, this art is in a temporary frame, waiting to bring its gorgeous mystery into your beautiful home.

This little egg is just starting to crack, its surface full of rough spirals and gradations in color. If you’re wondering what hatches out of such an egg, you can just keep scrolling and see the magnificent spiral purple dragon that it will grow into.
This lovely egg is a symbol of possibility, of potential getting ready to unfold, of something that’s almost done germinating and is ready to break out into the world
What else do you have in your life that’s like that, and how can you nuture it?
Above, you can see the soft textures of paint and paper, just two colors of minerals to make up this whimsical image. Below, the egg is waiting in a frame to incubate and hatch whatever’s inside.

If you’re still having apocalypse feelings, here’s another vision of a terrible future for you!
The shimmering blue moon has a fissure at its heart, and another mysterious light shines through the clouds high above. The skies are charcoal and violet with whatever destruction came through, and the buildings are blackened ruins. Greenery crawls up the sides of some, while others still smoke or are ochre with rust.
Whatever city used to stand here, there’s not much left.
Above, you can see a close-up of the ruined gherkin building, and the iridescent paint on both it and the moon adding just a bit of light in the smoky darkness. Below, the painting sits in its frame looking innocuously non-prophetic.
