ROUNDS and Reflections started with simply wanting to add a toy ball into the composition.  While developing designs the ball morphed, changed sizes, and organically wanted to reflect. The ball became celestial.

Then water and color came next from a reference photo originally chosen only for the dog with ball. But the water was so beautiful and primal. It also offered another surface for reflection and begged for different paint handling.

What I’m saying is everything is not planned out at the start; the method is a combination of intention, experimentation, accident, and new intentions. Rinse and repeat.

I’m just following the muse.
