Circles within circles, swirls within swirls. This abstract painting is full of shine and complexity, gold like scattered petals floating through everything while translucent, pearlescent white makes concentric shapes all through the complex background.
The violet has deconstructed itself as much as everything else, red and blue visible in places while still letting the eye find purple first and foremost.
The first in a series, this painting is immensely fun to sit and play with, moving it back and forth so the different metallics catch the light or vanish into the shadows like floating seeds sinking below the water.
Above, you can see the shimmering white pearl and gold paints catching the light, giving up their translucency and becoming solid, floating above the purple instead of fading into it. Below, the painting is waiting in a frame to be mailed off to its new home.
