36x48", acrylic on canvas
water never looks the same way twice. influenced by temperature, wind, light, and the mysteries under the surface, i think as an artist that it's elusiveness is what always appeals to me. that i am never to know all it’s secrets, unable to slow it down to where i can take in every detail of what makes up a scene in front of me without losing something integral, leaves me with a sense of painting a puzzle piece. it may look correct, but it has no sound, and it does not move. our memory and our imagination must fill in to ever complete the scene again.
