A rectangle, portrait in orientation. Layers of acrylic poured on top of layers that cover layers like distant memories. A light minty green blankets the majority of the painting, only about an eight is left along the bottom edge.
Though never completely erased, only replaced or covered by another memory to take up space.

Smeared with the mint is pink, another green, yellow, sky blue, and red. Each creates separate portions that melt into each other in places and stand their ground in others.
That faint memory of a feeling. The way perfume or cologne can trigger a sensation of someone in a split second. Or fading from thought as time replaces interactions with new ones. Though never completely erased, only replaced or covered by another memory to take up space.
Only along some of the edges do we see the traces of previous layers. Though the texture throughout the piece easily suggests there is history there.
