Coral Floor, 2020, 2.5 Inches


“Coral Floor” was inspired by a dream I had. Swimming in the ocean, close to the bottom ( next to the shore of course ), shallow beach, sparkling water and I suddenly swim up to this blanket of pink corals growing from the ocean bead. It was a startling, safe and happy dream. I do not naturally gravitate towards the color pink in my paintings because I believe, subconsciously, I’m a bit conditioned to view it as a “girlie” color. Delicate. Corals are a representation of being delicate – can easily be destroyed by a slight change in the climate – but also resilient and strong because they support thriving local ecosystems in the ocean.
The hints of blue and yellow are to signify the sparkling sunlight filtering through the waves onto the coral reef.

Each dab / dot of paint is applied individually and since the dots need to stay separate, I have to wait for one application to dry, before I can apply the next paint color. Painting this is an exercise in patience. Only after I have applied the paint will I know if it is working.

The top of the painting is textured.

The edges are also painted in the same style and texture.

The painting weighs 30 grams, including the magnet clasp. Wearing on a thin t-shirt will drag the t-shirt down in an unsightly manner. I recommend wearing this on a formal shirt or other textile that will not easily warp. Or you could display this on a bare white canvas and hang it for display.

Do not keep anything on top of the brooch as the texture will get flattened and reduce the three-dimensional effect.

This can sometimes be repaired – the varnish and paint will bounce back on its own but it can take months – best to avoid.

This is a piece of art. Just like you wouldn’t sit on a painting, scratch it on purpose or try to bend it, use similar care with this piece.

Ideally, store flat wrapped in butter paper that comes in the packaged box, which is shipped to you.

Do not wrap in plastic. Plastic will stick to varnish / acrylics & leave an impression.

Keep away from solvents like isopropyl alcohol and perfume. If such contact is made by mistake, do not try to wipe it. Leave it alone to dry. Do not touch it. The alcohol will evaporate and the varnish will dry on its own.

Excessive heat or cold are best avoided.

If it gets dusty / linty, use a soft paint brush to brush into the crevices gently.
