An artist friend and I each purchased an unusual 13 inch square silver frame, with an opening just large enough for a 3.5 inch square painting. There is no mat...just a whole lot of decorative silver! Our challenge, as we saw it, was to individually choose a subject managable enough for the small working size, yet bold enough so as not to be swallowed up by the ornateness of the frame.This water lily was my choice. It was painted from a series of reference photo I took this past summer while kayaking on Crystal Lake in New Hampshire.
Growing up I spent much of my time drawing, cutting, gluing and piecing things together. I never thought of it as making art. I just knew I was having fun. While my supplies and techniques continue to change, my desire to create remains...and I'm still having fun! Thanks for taking the time to view my work.
