Water and reeds and experimenting with brushstrokes. The light across her back was important, but so was the sense of space with the sky reflected in the water.

The mermaids come to the surface when it rains. And notice that the underwater glow looks different from the other side of the green water.

Darling little hummingbird, from having coffee on the back porch this morning..... her feathers glittering like tiny scales, tail spread out in a territorial display, and my trying to figure out how on earth to paint wings that aren't even visible because of how quickly they move.

Ripples

8"x8"

An experiment. One that took an awful lot of time and now looks like abstract nonsense. I mean, pleasant abstract nonsense, but still. The water in the stream with the sun shining through the trees on it, it was beautiful....

Shallow Water

9"x12"
click here to purchase

When the tide goes way, way out sometimes there's low spots on the beach and they fill with warm, flowing water. I call them tide pools, but I suspect that is just because I've only ever been to beaches here in the southeast. When I was a child I loved playing in them, and now my daughter loves playing in them too.
