Painting: Mixed Media on Aluminium.
Size: 24 H x 24 W x 1.2 in
" A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind, The years to come seemed waste of breath, A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death." W.B. Yeats.
Powdered Pigment and solvents on aluminium. There are no chemical reactions in this medium; It's a fluid medium, and that is what I both like and hate about it; you have to control the flow, or it goes "walkabouts". The surface effect is very like enamel, but it is far more versatile, and as far as I know, it is unique; I have spent many years experimenting with it in order to develop it's qualities. It is difficult to photograph, because it reflects through the surface and looks different in varying lights; rather like a "tiger eye" stone.

Thank you so much for the previous constructive critique Steven; as you see, I really thought about what you said and took it into the studio with me. I'm so pleased you like the result.
Delicate nuances extend a hynotic hold over the viewer, very desirable!
A terrific muzzle effect - it may evaporate any sinful intention:)
Greetings and congratulations for the inventiveness!
well what a fantastic work of art. i just love the way the colours blend in together also the way you created this with just a brush. excellent art skill.
I completely agree with Steven. This is a great success. I think something you might find very helpful to explore in the next one might deal with the tension between warm and cool colors.
And then another one with maybe a more compressed color and value range... playing with atmosphere like you did in your photo "I".
What great feedback from you all; just makes me want to get my ass into the studio and try again!
I am in complete agreement with what was said here. A fantastic work!
Go into your studio, continue to work in this direction begin to experiment with it, knowing that you have the means therefor.
When I look at this image, the verbals description that comes to my head is "flying" "freedom" "power/energy" and "temporarinese".
hahaha...only now I read the title...some how fit my description.
great painting lia.
you can feel the hell's angel run next to you...and told by an angel like me...
This is great. Like a god on fire. My only 'quip' would be for more empty space on the right side so that the mass of action is more 2 thirds and not feeling cut off, but it has balance and drama nonetheless.
Mooving and talking artwork I like it!
very delicious, swingful and elegance
I voted allready for this piece!!
hope you're doing fine with this entry, good luck!!
fantastic piece, Lia! Love the process - you ride the forces of chance like a cowboy a wild bronco!
