Technically, Tumbling 1 is actually the last of the 4 that I painted.  If you compare the bodies of the 4 this one has a less "speckled" effect.  I am not sure why?  But somewhere deep inside the muse just guides me intuitively and that's the way it appears on the canvas.  I can never paint something the same way twice which is fine as each "jellyfish" is different and has it's own unique personality.  
Yes, I do refer to them as jellyfish though they started out as a vision in my head and have morphed over time.  I actually see them to reside both in the Ocean and Deep Space.  Though you are welcome to see them as something else and somewhere else. 

You may ask, why did I name this one number 1?  To me, it just feels like it's the One that is starting the tumbling and goes head over heels from there.  What do you think?

Tumbling Series

Tumbling, like a jellyfish caught in a water current tumbling carelessly and freely head over heels. 

I had not planned on these paintings to be their own series.  I started with Tumbling 1 to go with a series I had started previously.  Once number 1 was done I kept rotating it 90 degrees to see which way I liked it and asked my muse (aka my husband) and he said to me, "what if you did a study with each one going in a different direction.  Up, down, right and left?  I thought to myself, well that's a thought.  I got out 3 more canvas's and went to work.  Each one was started pretty much the same way but as with all my tendrils they take on a life of their own and intuitively show me how they want to be.  Each painting also decided which direction it ultimately wanted to be in.
