The air bubble series are inspired by an experience I had after cornea transplant eye surgery in 2016.  The transplanted tissue was suspended with an air bubble that appeared as a floating black and gray disc in my field of vision.  As was predicted by my surgeon, the floating air bubble disc was visible for only 4 days.  However, seeing it became, and has remained, a powerful impetus that has led me to create these paintings, and many other mixed media works in this series.
