I recently found a folder of photos I had taken one stormy summer day on the beach in Connecticut, where I used to walk almost every day when I lived there. I started this series as a new color palette for my storm category, I love to paint the drama of a good storm! I am always thinking of new ways to expose the silver aluminum to create that wonderful silver light/reflection and have been experimenting with the abstract quality of dripping and running the paint in a semi-controlled manner. I did this a lot with my spray painted floral series and it usually opens the door to new ideas. I have also been working on finding ways to expose the silver in a textured, random way. This painting has a pebbly effect in the center right panel of the Diptych.
