Portholes evolved through my experimental use of Liquitex pouring medium.

Base layers of translucent colour merge into the highly glossy water scenes. These invite the viewer to peer through the custom made wooden porthole frame edges into the magical mysterious underwater world 

- often involving the imagination of the onlooker.
