One Day I decided to just play on a small canvas I had just lying around in the studio. I wanted to play with color and to see what other ways I could manipulate the texture medium. I came up with this study.
It sat around in my studio for a few weeks while I worked on a painting for my mom. It began to grow on me. The more I stared at it, the more I enjoyed the energy I had created. It was time to enlarge it. I made the colors a brighter and more opaque. I changed up the texture some. I am pleased with the larger piece. I like what I have learned in the ways of medium manipulation.
I titled the piece "Collision" because I imagine the image representing the capture of that moment in time when two forces meet. I imagine the static and the dust; the highs and lows of the sounds. A collision frozen in time.
