This piece starts with the film “Night Watch.” I loved that this film had its own version of a vampire story, including a different world. In particular, there is a certain unconscious state shown in the film that inspired me visually. In one particular scene, a boy falls backwards as his eyes leave orange trail paths. That is what led me to create this image.

acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"

I simplified eye shapes and added trails of dots that followed both eyes. This painting documents my variation of dot sizes. Following this painting I began experimenting more with dark colored backgrounds.


  1. Dot Art...simple but very effective...I've enjoyed looking!!! H

    Whenever I’ve made these works more complicated, they did not work as well.

    I’m very happy that you enjoyed viewing them.
