|"Timeless River" (detail) work in progress|
I often think about the abstract qualities of water in my paintings. So much so, there was a time I considered doing nothing but close-up studies of ripples, waves, and reflections. It would certainly make for an interesting collection of work and endless possibilities to explore the relationships between color and shape.
I've been struggling a bit as of late. The last couple of weeks have seen very little in terms of production, but I'm working through it. Yesterday was a great day at the easel and it may signal the end of my relatively short (for me) dry spell. Working on a riverscape always seems to help.
