One dreamy summer afternoon at golden hour a young farmer girl discovers a metal bucket filled with a mysterious sparkling liquid. When she uses it to blow bubbles, she is astounded to find a starry galaxy swirling within each.
Enchanted by the magic bubbles the girl dances, leaps, and twirls in a frenzied daze, creating thousands of new galaxies that rise inside the bubbles all around her.
With all the starry liquid spent, the girl sits contentedly contemplating the very last bubble galaxy that she blew, as the daylight fades and the stars appear in the warm summer sky.
Artist's Notes: Inspired by some idle summer sketching and some lovely photos of enchanted looking bubbles. Conceptually I was thinking of representing the three stages of creating: the initial 'discovery' of a new idea, the frenzied mess of bringing it into the world, and reflecting upon the process afterward.
