Coffer Dam

What is it? Well, it is the shape of an object called a “coffer dam.” When lowered over an oil leak, it is supposed to help contain the oil. The local newspaper showed a white painted coffer dam being used in dramatic night photos. So, I used bluish white dots contrasted by blue and purple dots over a yellow background. Yes, my painting vibrates visually.

  1. Yes, there is definitely movement in this one, Mo. I like it! I hope the coffer dam will work or that they find something else to do the job that needs to be done soon.

    I love the painting you are using for your avatar now. It's so vibrant and cheery looking! :-D

    Have a nice holiday weekend!

  2. Daisy:

    The coffer dam was one of the earlier solutions. Other things are being tried now.

    ‘Glad you like the new avatar. Ever since I painted it last December, I’ve been waiting to use it.

    You have a great weekend too.

    Mo : )
