Subatomic, Encaustic, 34×34″, 2014
Every now and then, one of the smaller 6×6″ experimental paintings leads to further exploration on a small scale, and then inspires me to try the concept or idea on a larger scale. This is what happened with four of the experimental pieces (numbers 29, 30, 44 and 45, pictured above). These smaller pieces were inspired by subatomic particles. The theme or idea allowed me to play with several things – lots of color, lots of drawn marks, and the grid format which I tend to love. The large piece, 34×34″, is entitled “Subatomic”, 2014.
