On Friday and Saturday I worked on another Flow painting. I seem to be moving away from the idea of flowing blood or blood vessels carrying the flow and am thinking more about the flow of life, about how birth and death are both a natural part of living, along with all the bumps and bruises in between. I think this is probably the most vibrant of my flow paintings. The photo does not quite capture all the subtle glowing blues behind the main circle. I tried to integrate a dark, dark area. This area is different shades of brown and indigo with a final glaze of thalo blue. I also wanted to integrate some of the yellows and greens of Spring. I hope your Easter Day is full of family, faith and blessings!
