A Magical Face in the Water Abstract Black and White Painting
Elements of nature are some of my favorite subjects. Fire, Water, Earth and Air are all fascinating to study and explore. Air is a little more difficult and I usually mean art with Clouds in it 🙂 Though that is technically water and air. Ok who is counting (LOL). All of nature is all of what we are and in an attempt to understand myself I tend to explore what is offered up by our creator in our natural world. Look more deeply into nature and you will understand yourself better……
This painting attempts to capture water flowing over rocks in the river. I am forever intrigued by the patterns that are made as sunshine dances over the surface of water and turns rocks into magical creatures. I see an abstract face in this paintings and it almost freaked me out a little bit when I finished this piece and sat back and looked at it. The eyes are so very contemplative and staring at me so very seriously. When I was creating this painting I was focused on the small details and areas of light and dark. So when I was done I was actually really surprised. What do you see when you look at this picture?
