Time in a Bottle

"Painted to & inspired by the song by Jim Croce - the melodic notes of the harpsichord & guitar in this song made me see raindrops of color splashing down so I used my fingertips & thumbs to twist the paint onto the canvas. I combined lots of sparkling pigment with acrylic paint to give it a wet, light-reflecting sheen.

Listening to the lyrics about one's mortality & the desire to have more time with our loved ones brought to me a mindfulness about staying present in the moment which is particularly helpful when I’m feeling pain & discomfort due to my health. It was the paints, inks, reflux pigments & translucent mediums that makes the eyes feel like you're looking through water to find the delights floating around inside of an ocean or aquarium."
