Hello Everyone;

Here is a new painting I just completed today.  I had a few vacation days from my job and decided to put it to good use.  If you haven’t noticed yet, I lover specific things in a landscape.  Mountains and sky are important to me, and as far as I am concerned, trees are a must as well.  The real kick for me is water.  I love water in all forms whether I am painting it, looking at it or swimming in it.

Water is truly a relaxing element in nature that we sometimes take for granted.  Forget the fact that our bodies are made up of mostly water, and that we need it to live, grow things, wash up and so on.  Water also relaxes us.  We get lost in the gentle rhythm as it flows over rocks, or comes down in a beautiful refreshing summer rain.

When I first started painting water and for awhile, I always made my water blue.  I mean blue only eventhough it does come in many colors.  To this day, I still paint water the way I see it and love it, not necessarily the way it actually looks.  That is the beauty of an artistic license.

Enough about my love affair with water.  I hope you like the painting.  It is drying now.  When dry, I will post for sale in my shop.

Have a great day.
