Whooping Crackers 20x20 acrylic and mixed mediaHere are three more paintings from the "Pyrotechnics" series. These mixed media and acrylic paintings are a combination of vintage and made doilies as well as very fine glitter. Did you know that every firework was named and designed to explode into different abstract flowers?
The painted forms in these pieces give hints to specific floral forms with out trying to be exact representations. I love how the shapes and colors of the doilies are reminiscent of the abstraction of fireworks. The glitter becomes a literal translation of the idea.

It was a lot of hard work but it was worth it. I am really excited by this new body of work. Something finally clicked, once that Michigan Winter was gone and the sun came out so did my inspiration. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts, even if they are just about how much you love fireworks!
