This painting has a strong geologic feel to it, even though it is abstract. I started out with a layer of metal leaf . I'm sorry it's so hard to see the shine of the metal leaf in a photograph.
Then I painted several transparent and opaque layers, using water misting to get the paint to flow and a stream of hot air from a hair dryer to somewhat direct the flow. Reminded me of herding cats (not that I've ever done that.)
