Beginning 2

Mixed Media on canvas: ink, acrylic, and enamel paints. Ready-to-hang - no framing required.

In this piece, I was inspired by my science background and played with effects of light using dark colored ink and paint with empty space from the white canvas or added alcohol splatters. I, then, added, twirls of Pebeo moon paints purposely mixed in selected colors to give an impression of the beginning of a new universe.
