Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrɨkər/ or /ˈpɛtrɨkɔər/) is the scent of rain on dry earth, or the scent of dust after rain.

I have had a dry spell in the production of my paintings. I feel like I've become too comfortable and so I wanted to try something new and minimal and halt my inclination to cover a piece all over. This one is still in progress, but I like where it is going. The only changes I'm thinking about making are adding more dots, but just on top of the existing ones. I want to leave the area of negative space as it is.
