Help! This painting needs a name! What does it evoke for you? Do you see a visions of traveling with a passport? Postage markings as if on a vintage postcard? Beyond a circle and some numbers, what do you see?

For those who enjoy learning about how this was created, read on… This painting was deceptively simple to create. I did most of the artwork in a mixed media class I took just experimenting with different looks. I normally would have added a lot more depth and visual interest to it, but my instructor challenged me to stop and just stare at it for a while…maybe this one would have a simpler, less busy look to it.
First I mixed some yellow, white and gold acrylic paint and laid the base. I painted a large circle frame with a turquose color and used the frame itself as a stamp.
Rubber stamps and archival quality permanent ink came in handy to mark the orange and turquoise stamped patterns. Then I used a smaller circle frame as a guideline to paint the holographic looking iridescent blue. When you move around to view it, the iridescent quality makes it look different from each point of view – very cool!
Last I used rub on numerals to give it the numbered effect. And then I stopped. I think it is beautiful in its simplicity. And what, oh what shall we name it??
