In this large abstract oil painting, gently rippling water causes distorted patterns over smooth pebbles at the edge of the pond on a warm day.
Winters are long in Maine. But the day goes fast if I set up an outdoor still life and paint it through the window.
A large abstract painting expresses peacefulness, a quiet evening, still water disturbed only by the slow stroke of the canoe paddle.
This experiment in imagination started with a sweeping line, then other lines, then color in oil pastels. Early on I knew this needed to be expressed as a large oil painting.
