SENSING WATER VII
Mixed Media, 15 x 19 inches
This work was inspired by a high waterfall I visited in Ontario. This is just the top of the falls where it begins its drop over an escarpment. I liked the rock outcropping that split the falls into two streams. I wanted to capture the splashing and brightness of the water.
“There are forms that can only be seen when you are near a canvas, others only appear when you are far away. To paint is to know how to put nothing on a canvas, and have it look like something when you stand back.” – Robert Henri (1865-1929)
