Floating Chrysanthemum is now . . . Underwater Bag and Blossom

Underwater Bag and Blossom, 16" x 20" acylic on gessobord, June 2013

The Floating Chrysanthemum painting wasn't complete after taking another look weeks after my post on March 31.   I knew it needed a shift to further push the sense of floating, water and the light rays penetrating the space.  I repainted shapes of the shipwreck and sea creatures that I had previously covered and subdued the nearly dead centered flower.  This image is much closer to my original vision.
It is part of a current series called, "MANY, MOST, NOT ENOUGH"
