a gesture for a larger painting..... i like some of the movement of the hair. i also added a Prussian Blue wash over the pool [which doesn't appear here] that gives is more value and depth.

this is the fourth panel to the THREESOME on the home page of my website. [i guess i'll change the title of the series now....]

i have photographed all four... and will post soon... but.. i like this painting so much-- i wanted to feature it on it's own merits. it just swims and glows.....

a bittersweet image, for sure... but real art is born of emotion.

you know... we are always growing and changing.
sometimes it's by choice.... and other times it's by life.
i am being asked to grow right now -- by circumstances in my life....
learning to exercise my 'wings' of new-potential and character.
the series on butterflies is about change.
sometimes my new life is comfortable and other times i feel overwhelmed.
this small watercolor is a bit of reflection on the acceptance of change.

the juxtaposition of these swimmers create a strong composition that's slightly disquieting and unexpected in it's symmetry-

i like the strong dynamics and the rich palette.

each panel is 30 x 22
overall image is 30 x 45
