About this painting
Painted quickly, the original idea was to paint chaos forming into stability, a tumult becoming a square. The picture evolved from a cloud and the result is effectively an automatic painting, a painting from the subconscious.

Clouds form castles that escape from the square, or are the clouds being blown into the red prison?

Technical details
The blue background is acrylic paint thinned with water, a quick way to colour a painting surface.
