While busy experimenting I have also had to make sure that my regular gig is getting some attention, so in preparation for Father's Day I painted some new work for Lifestyles By Darrell Bell Gallery. I delivered the paintings yesterday, the above being one of them. It is a scene from the canoe trip last summer; the beautiful morning of our last day when we were on the home stretch- almost back to our starting point. As we paddled I was struck by the deep blue of the water and the rippling reflection, both serene and mesmerizing. This was the only lake, of the four we were on during the trip, that we saw a power boat and, I assume, fishermen. I always wondered if they had any luck that day.
