This painting is based on my love of science and having looked through many a microscope, the little tiny world that lives unseen in our world is nonetheless there, on the microscopic level. This is a staple theory of science fiction stories. Are these molecules or some fraction of a biological experiment? There are always other interpretations of abstract art and I would prefer people use their own imaginations to conjure up the stores. The painting would be perfect for anyone interested in science or astronomy. This painting is mixed media, done in 2015, and is framed and ready for hanging.
Long ago in a galaxy far away, I was a talented child drawer, and that morphed into a love of painting. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I am now doing an ongoing abstract series based on astronomy, a long-time love of mine. I am originally from Minnesota. I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because for me, that's when the magic happens.
