Ball of String

This fall has been busy with travel and painting commissions. Ok, those are my excuses for not posting on my blog for two months. Between commissions, I've done a few small paintings to record ideas. I've looked at this ball of string for a long time. The solid machine-wrapped ball contrasting with the loose willy-nilly string is interesting. In my minds eye, I saw a high key painting with back lighting. It seemed like a simple idea, but I wiped and restarted three times before got what I wanted.
