Painting Progress

June 3, 2009

Here is another one of the 16″ square paintings. I think this one is finished. It made me think of bubble gum, so I’ve titled it “Double Bubble.” It even kind of reminds me of kids’ gum that’s been — er, ah, —  “disposed of” in familiar places. I had to have gum removed from my hair with scissors when I was about three.

Double Bubble Sm

“Double Bubble” – Acrylic on Panel, 16 x 16″

 

Since I enjoy breaking rules (always have!) I thought about the least predictable color combination that I could use to go with the bubble gum pink blobs that I had already added on top of the green with brown dots. At first I had the large pink blob, part of which was off the edge. Next I added the missing amount of that pink circle to the opposite side. It still didn’t seem quite right — or wrong enough, perhaps. So I added a huge blob of bright red. The tiny white specks you see are light reflections from the glossy surface.

    Martha,
    the red blob adds something definitely ineresting to this picture. I hid it with my hand to be sure 😉

    Fun! This is an interesting connection… I cannot wait until school is out in 7 days, and I have more time to make some art!

      Amanda, there are just not enough days in the summer, are there! I hope you make the most of them!

    I love “it didn’t look wrong enough” as a thought process. You know exactly what you’re looking to achieve. Very cool as always.

    The dark and the green dots are so interesting, the green dots could be shadows of the dark ones which adds some more 3-D effect.
