This work is a stream of conscious flow of color. Removing as many natural extremities of the violin as possible so I could sand the base, reminded me of the cycle of rebirth that all things mature to. The abstract painting describes the flow of emotions that music creates and youth, which is the essence of metamorphosis. The beads are African recycled glass, red coral, seeds, fiber optic stone and Czech glass. They all were once something else and have been transformed to a new shape and purpose.
