Soul Surface tells you that I was ready to “mix-it-up”. Staying with the cooler palette but now taking a macro approach I chose to really look for visuals that told me about the small works that exist within the larger scenes I have been painting. It is a great time of year to observe lily ponds, their colors are changing, and they are alive with activity. You may see more lily pads in the coming days as I have had the opportunity to capture some close-ups on my late season kayaking outings. Interesting that there were no actual lilies in this particular scene but it was the motion of the water that drew me in.
