Air bubbles expelled from breath underwater are not round circles, rather they are imperfect blobs.

I created the water in this environment by layering gold wax crayon scribbles, glazes, pastel powder and paint glazes. I only used a brush to paint on the drippy air bubbles. I applied the rest of the media with tools, my hands, and gravity to incorporate organic randomness.

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