This painting refers to "Creation" and the way that the firmament was created. It is showing us, today, viewing this day of creation, giving us an understanding of what it would have been like to experience that. Pure wonder.
"Firmament" is a mixed media painting on paper that is part of the "Swimmer" series. It is one of my ongoing explorations into experiencing the joy of life and translating that to my paintings.
"I decided that what had been stripped out of painting-i.e., the ability to make relationships, to be metaphorical and referential, spiritual, poetic, all those things and aspects of human nature-had to be put back in if painting was to go forward." .
