I love macro lenses...they tend to show you things your eye can't, from a different perspective. I wanted to do this for a long time, and it only took a couple of different drips of paint before I got this nice, fat drip that reflected the light just right. It also helped that I was using a digital camera. This image makes a strong statement about itself, not about any abstract ideas. It speaks simplistically and beautifully with the use of stagnation and color.
