Automotive paint, clear coat on wood
I once became very keen on Paul's use of the word "fragrance" in 2 Corinthians chapter 12: "Thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere." The orange lines of this painting represent the morse code translation of the word fragrance, thin lines representing the dots and thick lines representing the dashes. In a very real sense, this painting literally says the word "fragrance." Further, this was the compositional structure I chose to utilize as a means of experimenting with automotive paint as a medium. This painting was created solely with automotive paint and automotive painting processes.
