Thirty in Thirty. Day Eleven: Thinking About Summer Light…

(Untitled -Still Waters Series) ⓒ  Michaela Harlow – 12″ x 24″ – Oil and Oil Bar on Panel

Today I finished up a horizontal piece from last summer. This painting is part of the ‘Still Waters’ series; all painted from summer memories. Working on it today brought me back to my kayak —wandering in and out of marshy grass and cattails— on sunlit, still waters. The play of light on water, shimmering between blades of tall grass, is mesmerizing. Usually I’m good about staying in the moment. Today I found myself slipping back in time; lost in a summer afternoon.
