Right before my trip to Minneapolis I finished "To The Deep," an 18"x36" mixed media painting using a much loved photo from our last whale watch.
A lot of my paintings explore my experience along the shore, but I really wanted this one to convey all the ethereal mystery and lurking darkness that the open ocean holds. I knew there would be many layers of paper and color in this one so I decided to document the process of creating it on my instagram feed, from first layers of paper to the last paint splatter. Here are a few shots from the process:
You can see all of them on my Instagram. "To The Deep" is available for purchase in my shop.
