My husband and I attended a family gathering over Memorial Day in Florida. The youngest of the group was a two year old girl, Gabriella, who was entertained much of the time by a couple of bubble machines. The two machines produced a plethora of bubbles and created some fascinating visual effects. I photographed several for the fun of it. My favorite is the one below because the center left bubble looks like someone painted a watercolor landscape in it!
Painting in a Bubble
I was so intrigued with the idea of making art from bubbles that I bought a couple of bubble machines when I got home. Finally I pulled out my camera and revved up the machines a few weeks ago. I took the photos against a light morning sky, before it turned deep blue. The result is a colorful array of bubbles, some which look almost surreal against the morning sky. These photos were not manipulated in Photoshop -- this is how the bubbles actually looked. I'm planning on doing some encaustic pieces with the bubble images.
I'm a professional artist who works primarily in acrylic on canvas. I've had solo exhibitions in museums and fine galleries; my work is in public, corporate and private collections internationally. This blog is where I share news updates and new work.
