Rossi was inspired by the ocean currents. The worldwide ocean currents of the thermohaline circulation system are extremely complex. The flow of cold, saline surface water downward and toward the equator can only be clearly recognized in the Atlantic. Warm surface water flows in the opposite direction, toward the pole. The five major ocean currents are the North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific and Indian Ocean. She used liquid fluid acrylics and use a flip and drag technique to pour the fluid acrylic in the canvas. She used Golden Acrylic paints and gels and Dick Blick Cotton Canvas. She also utilized Floetrol, lubricants and silicon to obtain the cells effects. She ships all her fine art stretched and protected with a mason board or similar product. She continues to experiment with new media and surfaces.
