Encaustic on panel
Right now, there's an unprecedented number of Great White Shark juveniles in Monterey Bay. The photos from above of them all swimming, just their shadows visible underwater, are pretty amazing. This painting, Aerial, was inspired by those images -- the beautiful colors of the ocean, and the threatening shadows that are a hint of what's under it all. The colors are hard to photograph accurately, but I got pretty close: violet-gray, milky yellow, white, emerald green, several shades of blue, and dashes of pink.
