This piece would be cataloged under my "quilt" series, which is an on-going process that started around 2008/9. Like 90% of my work, the title and work itself came from stream-of-consciousness painting. Very rarely do I begin a piece with the end result in mind. I begin by picking out a basic colour palette, in this case, it was the blocks of black white and goldenrod. Then I just start. I don't think about it too much until i get into the middle of the process, then you have to begin thinking of placement, complementary colours, etc., to not overcrowd the original idea. The title came randomly when a mosquito got caught in some white paint in the top right hand corner of the goldenrod portion. And then I noticed i had already drawn what resembles a cartoon rocket in the middle of the black section, under the white/yellow/red/blue hash marks. Simple really.
