8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas panel
Worked on this one for a few days, just love the greenish hues in the water. This reminds me of the crystal clear water in Montana. I used a reference photo (from a magazine of Canada) to help my student, Cindy, paint something similar, only she added flowers in the foreground. I loved the way hers turned out, so I started playing with a similar idea, changed the mountains and added the rocks and the pine tree. It was fun to get back to my Daily Paintings.
As I painted this I kept thinking about how clean and pure it all looks. I often think heaven must have mountains and crystal clear water. Living in Florida makes me long for that pure water.
