The Water Project : Reflections on the meditative qualities of light on a water surface. The infinite variety of line, color and light; its indescribable qualities; its calming presence, and the mysteries of a surface simultaneously opaque, translucent and reflective. Like many poets, painters, writes over the ages, I find water to be a great metaphor for so many aspects of life--and a great muse. Since moving to Colorado I find myself longing for water bodies, given the scarcity. The lakes and rivers I have found here are spectacular: and worth celebrating with a series of paintings.
