Ah Beng Painting Again

I've never thought I'd be able to do this in a million years. But somehow I managed to whip up two paintings today.

I bought a huge piece of canvas a looong time ago. I had to tie it on top of the roof of my car to transport it home. After collecting algae, bacteria & mushrooms over that period of time, I finally painted something on it. I call this The First Circle. It's 4'x4'.

It may not look like much from far but upon closer inspection, I hope that you'll be able to appreciate the textured surface.

I like the other smaller piece (1.5'x1.5') as well but unfortunately it cracked cos I painted over another layer of painting. I'm still not sure what to call this one yet. Any ideas?

I'm excited now & will definitely be squeezing out more time (like squeezing for toothpaste) to do more of this!

Hi Greg,
Nice paintings. I like the 2nd one more. Gives me an impression of "intensity"- red colour, and the green outside sounds like "enjoyment" in an open field. Very refreshing like a Mendelssohn violin concerto.

It's interesting how you relate it to music. When I took a good look at the two paintings after I was done with them, I actually thought of them as a resonating sound wave in circular form, coming out & vibrating with the music. I usually visualise with music, but in this instance, it was music that came out from the visuals. Sort of reminded me of Arabesque - an abstract animation with music. Try Youtube it, it may be there.
