Mitosis

Sometimes, when I’m in abstract mode, I use a sketch pad to ‘road test’ some of my doodles. I am sure that the smallish format (9x12inch) inhibits my arm motion. I wonder what I will come up with when I have more room. That is fun to think about.

I return to splatter mode today.  I began with random splashes of green followed by splotches of dark blue. My mind wandered back to my recent visit to Burbank and Will singing ‘Old MacDonald’.  I flipped my paint brush in synchrony with the ‘E-I-E-I-O’ chorus.  After enlisting the help of a can of compressed air, I decided that today’s creation was beginning to look more like a cell about to divide than anything related to farming.  All I had to do to complete the illusion was to add a bit of yellow about the equator and  red at the poles of my imaginary cell.

I realize that not everyone will share my vision of this study. Feel free to imagine your own associations.

  1. Yes it could be mitosis, but could it also could it be a ripe poppy seed head about to shake the seeds all over the soil? could it be a hungry bed bug with a new ankle to feed on? Could it be a bug on the windscreen of a fast moving truck? It could be different things to everyone,

    No matter what it could be – it IS art – making people look, and think, and reflect, and wonder – and look again.
