Inspiration : Lichen & Seaweed

Inspiration : Lichen & Seaweed

I am often inspired by the tiniest things, and am always on the lookout for interesting patterns, shapes, and textures. Here are a couple of photos of what inspired me and the painting layers that resulted. These layers will eventually be covered up, but they are part of the history of the painting.
