The colors used in this painting include shades of blue, emerald green, teal green, turquoise, yellow, marigold orange, raspberry red, fuchsia and purple with highlights of white.

This work is available as Fine Art Giclee Reproductions on Paper or Canvas.

"Chaos in Color" is one of my most time intensive works. It started with a few strokes of leftover paint, and got revisited after a few months of incubating, so to speak. The first was the sun, then the emanations of color coming out from the sun. 

Eventually the painting developed so that there were a series of tangential lines. This is where it got super detailed. 

White highlighted lines came into play in the sky. Then some little white lines on a series of emerald green lines reminded me of snow on treetops at the edge of a forest.

Three large tear drop shapes on the left remained as their own unique entities.

The name of this painting was inspired from a phrase in a book that had deep, spiritual significance to me. In the middle of an ephemeral forest, a form of order existed in what appeared to have no system.

Though an abundance of people are reminded of the work of a certain Dutch painter when they see this painting, I see more wavy lines in his, but more tangential straight lines in my own. My opinion is that other of my works may be more likely to be compared. However, I do accept the compliment. 

My process prevents me from copying anything, even my own work. Any resemblance of my work to that of others is entirely coincidental. I generally paint from my head without using any reference material.
