I seem to be revisiting old themes a lot - this is another from a series of photo references I took off the Point du Raz on the western tip of Brittany a number of years ago. I love the dual layers of the ocean bottom and the swirls of light reflected on the water surface - a challenging subject!!!

This painting came from the weekend I spent in the Crowsnest Pass area last spring, at a painting excursion organized by the Alberta Society of Artists. One day we visited this small lake, which had gorgeous shifting reflections in it. I took lots of reference photos and did a few quick colour sketches in paint. This is the first large painting to come out of the ideas I brought home with me.
