Can I just say, I’m sooooo in love with this painting!
When I first started this I had “blocked” the colours, but it didn’t turn out well at all… Looked more like blue camo then anything. So I put it away for a bit and thought on what I’d do with it. I realized I had to completely rework it, make it look more fluid… It is water after all!
I had taken the original picture this fall while out on the waters of Georgian Bay with my friend John in his sail boat – what fun! Highly recommend sailing around Parry Sound in Georgian Bay by the way, absolutely gorgeous there!
I’ve been musing for awhile now on painting a water series, more to draw attention to the fact that we REALLY need to start protecting our water. Here in Canada we luckily still have the ability to drink straight from some remote lakes and rivers, but in most countries that hasn’t been an option for decades.
I’ve traveled to Mexico a lot over the years, backpacking through this incredible country has really taught me a lot. And the biggest thing that stood out to me was how lucky we are to even be able to brush our teeth with tap water! Something so simple to us, would be so incredible to them.
We need to do more as a civilization… We need to protect our lifeline.
