Cambrian Explosion, small painting 12, acrylic on 8"x10" canvas board, March 2012
Palette knife mixing and smearing, a wash, drips, brush marks… ah, the ‘technical’ details are boring! Cambrian Explosion — a real name that fits! Enjoy!

Out of curiosity, I looked up the definition of Cambrian. You’re right. You picked the perfect title for this painting. There is such depth in this painting, and a lot of wonderful textures. It’s got so much going for it. It’s one of your best yet! Well done, Zorgor!
Thanks! Really?? Thanks!! 😀
I think there is more for me to explore in this direction…
Yes really! It’s excellent! One of my favorite parts is the spray if rich green in the lower center of the painting. Very nice work! By the way, I read in a comment that you don’t have any of your work hanging in your home. Why not? You should cherish your work and display it proudly! 🙂
Well thank you very much. 🙂 Gee… I wish I could say that green smear was more… intentional. 🙂 Glad you like it! Yeah, never really got around to hanging any of it up… I have, really a lot of it, hanging in my cube at work… 6 of them I think. I guess I figure that’s where I’ll see it more.
Love this! Really I do! i don’t know what it is….the brilliant colors that contrast and compliment at the same time. Awesome job.
Thank you so much! 🙂 I’ll have to analyze this one a little more!
Don’t over analyze. 🙂
Ok I’ll try not to. 🙂 Really, just want to think about how I did this, so I can try to do it again!
So as I was staring at this trying to figure out why you both like it so much, my daughter tried again to sneak up on me. She does that — hasn’t pulled it off yet! 🙂 So I asked her how you catch a unique rabbit. She said, “paint a unique rabbit on a canvas then catch it on the canvas?” which I thought was a pretty good answer! Then she looked at this and asked me where the unique rabbit was. I said, I don’t know, where is it? And right away she found one! If you look at the three red-orange-yellow smears in a triangle on the left, the one on the right “corner” is the unique rabbit! The blue dot on its left is the eye. It even has ears, feet, and a tail! Wow!
I see the bunny! And, I see other things…
I like! You must bring it in for a thorough Dani-interpretation.
Heh… I just bagged it and put it by the door… 🙂
