Serene Water #1This painting is the first in a series of six. As the artist Mary Pratt has stated “Art equals work.” This piece however, was a delight to paint. It really did flow out of me and on to the canvas in a way so different from the subsequent five, which were much harder work.
Quite abstract, with no foliage, ducks, shore line or sky for reference, nevertheless Serene Water #1 evokes one fleeting moment of light on water and that’s why I painted it.
The capturing and sharing of fleeting moments are a personal joy. So easy to miss yet caught here for you the viewer. This painting speaks to me. I hope it speaks to you.
