The title of this painting comes from a poem by Emily Dickinson (F-161, line 11). This abstract (non-objective) painting is textured and combines lines, swirls, pools of blues, pinks, purples, reds and teal. There are some copper and pearlescent highlights. The overall sense is cosmological. The whole is varied and complex, created through a series of additions and subtractions until the whole emerged that I felt satisfied with. It's been juried into two exhibitions this past year, making it in over many others, a testament, I think, to how the whole 'works'. It is professionally framed in a three-inch deep, simple, modern, walnut frame (which adds a slender 1-inch to the overall width).
