Up from Below the Surface

When inner sub-marine currents started nudging, I pulled out a painted canvas previously featured on September 4, 2017 and October 1722, and 23 of 2018.

Covered it with black gesso, grabbed a ceramic tile for a starting color reference, mixed up colors, and let an expression of salty seawater and phytoplankton make itself known.
