This past year I have been studying light in the context of painting colour into a painting. Artists throughout time have been challenged in their efforts to succeed in such an endeavour. Artists have cursed and cried in their efforts to capture the magic of light in a fleeting moment in time. This image does not do the painting justice. Since I manage my own website and upload my own images I am forever challenged to balance out the myriad of colours and greys captured through a camera lens. Nevertheless, painting the dark browns and greens and greys against the illuminating light of the sun dancing on the water was an exercise I am repeating now in my newest work - coming soon .
