Viridian green & teal tones contrast with Payne’s gray, phthalocyanine blue and Hansa yellow, creating illusions of shark-like shapes and images, though no literal subject matter is intended in this abstract painting. “Jump the Shark” is a phrase known in cinema to represent an unbelievable scene. In 2020, there have been many previously-thought unbelievable situations and moments, with the COVID-19 pandemic, schooling and working from home, and increasing drama in politics. To have hope for the future, sometimes it’s helpful to believe in unlikely turns of events in a positive and productive direction.
