I’m not entirely sure these 2 paintings are complete. But I think they are.
I wanted to get a feel for a pond and those mystic flowers, the water lilies that bob the surface. Or maybe it’s of gently still cove waters, moved by air and slight currents between sun and shade, some fallen branches always at a pond’s curving ends and middles. Sometimes you get into a painting and it keeps going, you keep finding changes to make, a different tilt and flow, shadows move around…this is that to me now, maybe something to keep on painting for a year.
This is a fairly large canvas. The thought here was strong foreground color, but sort of telescopic in that the center is focused…then the edges fade off into whatever is back there in all that cobalt blue whispering sweet nothings and seducing the bloom out of the vase.and off it goes……..
