Sweet Water

Springtime suspended. Willows aglow but not in leaf. A few extra moments to observe the unfolding of a new season, reflected in the river. Warm colors contrast with cooler hues as long light dances on liquid glass. Sweet water . . .

    Great turmoil in this piece! At least to my eye. I like the mood/feeling you’ve captured here.

    Thank you, Jen. I think you hit the nail on the head. Sometimes, my work reveals things -subconscious thoughts I suppose- that I’m not really aware of until I look them in the eye, so to speak. You know how that goes, eh?
