Still Water

Oil on Canvas
30 x 40 inches

This is another image exploring the effect of light on the surface against the reflection cast into the water. I love playing with that sense of solidity versus the feeling of depth. This image was inspired at one of the ponds near where I lived in Alberta. I frequently stopped by to check on the various bird families being raised on this tiny body of water (eared grebes, sora, wigeon...). Every visit offers a new visual experience for ideas to paint.
