oil on cradled panel

 It's been a while since I've painted a bow

but I quickly remembered how obsessed I am with the interlocking shapes and colors.

a jigsaw puzzle of interior and exterior.

A test of what colors my mind sees

 versus the colors my EYES see

PLUS the color I WANT to see :)

I painted a thin underpainting of colors before starting with thicker color

a trial and error to make "gold"

All along I had been thinking of this bow as a star, trying to make it glow and explode with color, and as timing would have it, two actual stars collided!! 
Making a cloud of gold and platinum!

gazillions of particles and colors colliding to make gold! :D

The same particles apparently that make up our world and even us!

the wonders of creation!
We are all stars :)
Go forth... shine bright! <3 p="">
