Red Tide


"Red Tide" is an original acrylic painting on paper, then adhered to a wood cradle (open-back box). Onto this painting I traced an object I found on the ground while out walking one day; it's arch shape with cut-out rectangles appeals to me. I've included a picture of this object in the photos. Lettering was added using stencils stating, "A red tide occurs from algal blooms - HAB (harmful alga blooms)." The finished piece is sealed with a matte medium glaze and measures 9 by 12 inches. Wired and ready to hang.

Red Tide definition: a discoloration of seawater caused by a bloom of toxic red dinoflagellates.

✒︎ Tybo’s Tall Tales*: This picture is a strong, aggressive image, It makes you feel inspired, and gives you the courage to do something. It could be because it was forged with the aiding of an angel of inspiration, and determination.

*My 15-year old grandson’s summer job was to stock my Etsy shop. One of his duties was to write about my artwork :)
