Memories of Spruce River

Here is the most current version of this painting. I think the upper left and lower right corners look more complete now and the eye moves around the canvas without getting stuck. the changes are subtle, but I think they make the painting a bit better. Thank you to those who offered suggestions. I love doing these abstract reflections, but I could keep tweaking them forever... at some point it just has to be done.

I concur. Done.

I sit here looking at this beauty and just have to smile. It makes me quite happy. I can almost see koi darting around beneath the surface...


Nicki said...

Don, Thanks for your feedback. I'm happy to know it makes you happy! And I get the Koi reference.

Have a great day.

si sente la trasparenza, il riflesso ma anche lo spessore dell'acqua: bellissimo

Grazie, Fabrizio, io sono così contento di sentire il senso di profondità e movimento. Le tue parole mi rendono felice!
