Calm Summer Series

These two paintings were my first attempt at using the acrylic pumice gel. Mixing the gel with reds and applying with a spatula onto the paper, I cut through the gel with a small piece of credit card to reveal the glazed colors underneath. The colors gave me a sense of calm summer but during this particular time the San Bruno explosion happened due to the neglect of PGE to check out of the residents’ complaints of gas smell the week before.
