"Tromsø Spring", also simply called "Spring" or "Easter," was painted with fairly runny acrylic paint on prepared canvas. Using a more liquid paint can be tricky because the paint then has a "mind" of its own and regulating where it goes is harder. Sometimes beneficent accidents happen and the result can be better than what you tried to control yourself. Sometimes, though, it can get ruined and you have to start all over.
This painting managed to be what I wanted of it. Strong colours and crisp white were used to evoke the sense of brightness and clarity in the air of northern places. The runny paint was used to give a sense of melting snow and ice with the onset of spring, so one side of the picture is colder than the other side.
This painting has been sold to a new home in Vancouver, B.C.
