Bubbling Lime began in the simplest of ways. I was eating dinner and had a glass of Pellegrino with ice and a slice of lime that had sunk to the bottom. The sun was shining through the glass and lit the whole thing up. I knew I had to capture this and I could hardly wait to get the table cleared and immediately set up my tripod with a macro lens attached to the camera. The glass had a cobalt blue base which graduated into a green color as you moved up towards the top. I was able to either capture the lime and bubbles or the color in camera but not both at the same time.
I downloaded the image to my computer and began to run through my filter program and was thrilled to locate one that provided the exact colors in the appropriate places and with a little work was able to achieve the finished artwork you see here. The print is dye infused on metal with a glossy silver finish which really provided the appropriate final touch as it allows for the effervescence of the bubbles to come through. I was also pleased that with the slight blurring to the left side the image had a kind of primordial beginnings feel to it.
I’m always drawn to subjects with lines and repeating patterns so this image really appeals to me on a personal level and I very much enjoy having this piece of artwork in my surroundings.
