Ripple Pool Landscape Painting
This abstract landscape painting was Inspired by a dream of a very deep pool of greenish water and huge yellow stones well below the surface. In the painting, I made the stones look very much alive, almost like eggs containing life waiting for the right time to release what is within them. The ripples make petal-like ruffles of the water here, like veils. I know I will return to this image, because I have not yet gotten to the bottom of it, but I am satisfied with this version, which shows that dream pool from a different perspective--one that strongly emphasizes the patterns of aliveness.
The original painting is oil on canvas, 24 x 24"/61 x 61cm with a traditional 3/4"/2cm profile and is ready to frame.
