Buoyant II

Buoyant II
Acrylic on canvas
36" X 36"
March, 2012


This painting began with a surreal image of a boat hull floating on air over land with a white clouds and blue sky background.  I painted the original "Buoyant" about five years ago.  After a client recently asked me to produce a print of that painting (which now lives in an apartment in New York City) I adapted the image to my current interest in how color can be manipulated via an almost all-square format. 


This is the result:  a 36 X 36 inch canvas divided into 324 two inch squares giving us the boat, Buoyant II, the sea and the gradient sky above.  The Caspian Terns and Bonito were the last touches.
