New Work: Supernova

Supernova

Supernova

My latest piece started life as a fractal I originally thought looked like fireworks.

I sat on this fractal for a week, then started working with it. I layered it on itself in many different ways. It went through three different versions before I decided on this one. After that, I tried a variety of texture combinations before simplifying a bit for this final result.

The circle in the middle is the same fractal used in Focus. Like Focus, this piece felt like it needed somewhere for the eyes to center on, before taking in the full image.

While this has a lot of red, it's not part of my Red series. The color gamut used is different, if similar.

Let me know what you think!
