Day 8 - 30 Paintings - 30 Days - January, 2016

Quarkiness

Ah - Quantum Physics - Today's piece gives hints of quarks - up quarks, down quarks, plus electrons, protonsneutrons, etc. These are important to us as artists because they are the molecules of color bubbling up from the imagination.  To me color has energy and life which reflects formerly unseen creativity at the molecular level.

I used acrylics on mineral paper.  If you haven't tried mineral paper, you may want to experiment with it.  It is made from calcium carbonate and has an amazing texture that feels much like suede.  It reacts nicely with acrylics (or other water media) and is slightly absorbent, allowing for soft edges.    

Click on the painting to explore the details.
Enjoy!
