Gliding in the Garden

Gliding in the Garden



This piece was created with a version of the marbling process.  Here I dripped the paints directly onto the wood, dragging objects through the paint to create interesting wavy lines.  Occasionally I'll hold the wood up vertically and rotate it in different directions, letting the paint run down a bit, to add further distortion to the shapes created.  The thickness of the paints on the wood add extra dimension.

 I like to let each marbled piece evolve naturally, slowly adding colors that seem to compliment the ones before them, and letting the painting's unique story emerge on its own. When I look at this painting I envision an aerial view of a summer garden. It is filled with lush green grass, bright yellow flowers, gold glistening sunlight, and a flock of black birds joyously gliding around enjoying the garden. This vision led to the name Gliding in the Garden.
