This is a painting that I did in July. I've been contemplating on whether or not it's done the past several weeks and concluded that it is. Last week I showed it to my painting group. We had a lot of fun looking at it in all orientations and pointing out the images they would see. It reminded me of being a kid lying on the ground with my sisters and seeing pictures in the clouds.
The painting is done in acrylic on 6 x12 gallery wrapped (1.5" deep) canvas. The painting continues around all edges. There's a smattering of irridescence on the painting, but it's very subtle and doesn't show in the photograph. The painting is matte - not shiny at all. I used strips of cheesecloth to help apply some of the paint, using it somewhat as a stencil.
I hesitate to name this painting, because I'd like the viewer to not be influenced by a title.
What do you see?
Do you prefer one orientation over the other? I only posted it in a horizontal format, because none of us like it in the vertical.
