Ebb Tide [SOLD]


This painting was a wandering journey of exploration in the making. Maybe these are the ripples left by an outgoing tide, or a cloud front drawing back to reveal a clear blue sky. I’m not sure which, but I don’t mind the ambiguity. I just followed the materials here and let them dictate the next step. The drying turquoise blue paint left beautiful textures behind as the water evaporated from it, leaving a crust of paint crinkled like dried mud. I worked over this in some areas with a fine mesh of lines, and in others left that lovely crinkly surface exposed.
