Behind this painting is a landscape of a winter scene that was symbolically overtook by this later version.
On the first day of spring I painted over the existing painting. With a colony of ants that lives outside my studio I was able to capture a few of the flying queens in the glazes. the brush was not used much in the later stages but rather I just poured the glazes on and tilted the canvas to get it to move around.
On the back of the canvas you will see a rip this is from a very unfortunate accident where this painting fell off the wall and onto this one.
