Stef and I started this painting on Sunday night. It was late; we were both tired after a long weekend, and we weren't trying to do anything ambitious. It's not finished yet - we want to add more fine detail - but the overall shape is probably not going to change too much. The working title is an in-joke - I don't know if it'll stick :)

Synaesthetic Culture
approx 15x15", acrylic and glass paint on board

Btw, [livejournal.com profile] promiseclean: is this the sort of thing you were thinking of for your commission? No worries if not, just pondering options :)

Yeah, that's much like it, very pretty.

I was thinking reds/orange/yellow and blues, like water and fire...

Cool :) Less green then, I can do that. Are you happy with the spirally sort of abstract style? I like the idea of something elemental...

Spirals would be great, like them very muchly (lots of my jewellery is spirally, lots of stars, too).

I've thought about the elements, although earth and wind/air don't appeal to me as much as water and fire.

Cool, so something spirally based on the elements of water and fire. I have an image in my head ...

Do you like big bold areas of colour or the kind of decorative detail in the above painting? Or a combination of both? :)

Probably more decorative detail than bold areas of colour, lines in lines (think Keith Haring, but can be a bit more girlie than that).

So, does that represent sound, taste, smell or touch? ;-)

I love this. The colours are stunning (as is the profile of the girl holding the painting! So pretty!).

That's great - wonderful bursts of energy.

Funnily enough, I spent a while trying to think what it reminded me of, then I realised it was the reredos (http://www.bbc.co.uk/tees/content/articles/2007/01/18/divineart_feature.shtml) of the cathedral I went to church in as a boy. Yours is more vibrant. I always liked the reredos, though as you can imagine when you see it, it has cauysed some major ructions (incidentally, the story gives the impression it has just been installed - it's actually been there since not long after the Cathedral was dedicated in 1987).

Hope all well, and that your parents are getting on well in Belize (?)
