Here's another look at one of the final paintings I'm working on for my next show - only about six more weeks until it's time for hanging it. It's a modular piece so you're seeing part of the top and part of the bottom together. The surface is continuing to co-operate now, lying smoother and flatter; as I wrote about in another post.
Did you ever start working on a project and then start to see signs of a similar interest or subject everywhere? While working on this series I noticed that the murmuration phenomena has expanded. I'm seeing short videos everywhere depicting murmuration events. I've started seeing articles about business and finance that have latched onto the word to describe their system or process and recently I saw a movie that used the idea as a special visual effect, as sort of an apocalyptic vision. I'm not sure if all of these references were always there and I'm just noticing because of my association or if it has simply increased in the past few months.
