Active Ingredients

“Active Ingredients”
Acrylic, graphite, pastel powder, wax crayon on panel
12 x 12 x 0.75 inches, framed at 14 x 14 x 2 inches

Clouds are full of the stored energy (water) which they pull by evaporating water from oceans and bodies of water. They are brewing before their insides are released. The clouds in this painting are active, swirling, and alive.

I used a combination of many media – paint, powdered pigment, crayon, glaze – to capture the vibrancy and beautiful chaos I imagine in a cloud before a storm.

This painting is part of Susan’s solo exhibition “Potential Energy”.
