Cosmic Iris

Original Art by Shirley Gibson

This one is part of a series of paintings I did when experimenting with just a couple of colors on rice paper. What’s different about this one is that I added some blue acrylic paint, just painting it on with my finger, mostly out of curiosity to see what would happen, and I think it looks pretty cool.

Love how this one turned out. I used a thicker paper for this, something that I thought might hold up to the iridescent acrylic paint I used for the moon shapes. It’s so much more vibrant in person, but still pretty cool, I think.

This is actually a detail from a larger painting that didn’t work out the way I had hoped. The heart, though, is super cool I think.

Rice paper is extremely tricky, and I didn’t make very many successful paintings with it. I love this one. It’s translucent in the light, and both sides are equally bright.
