This mixed media abstract is the product of an entirely spontaneous painting session. Sometimes it happens that I have no particular direction in mind. I start with a line or a blob in the middle of the canvas, and my muse seems to take over. At some point I catch the drift and figure out what's going on. The canvas was painted initially in one of Golden's neutral greys - probably the #6. The finished piece includes a bit of texture, crinoline material, to be specific which was applied with gel and then painted. With all the colourful lozenges and energetic lines in the painting ,the title was a logical choice.

Judge's Comment: "One has the sensation of sprouting blooms beneath rain in this highly textural abstract which feels both organic and surreal, but seems to rise before our eyes as we watch it reach skyward. Intense hues vibrate and pop against the warm gray background, amplifying the overall sensation."
