As I have expressed before, I love water. I don’t know if that is because I grew up in a desert with a shortage of water, or what. Yesterday I hiked to a waterfall in the Blue Ridge mountains. It was fun following the stream. I especially liked seeing the trout dart under the rocks.

Some of my favorite memories with water have been on high mountain lakes with my dad at sunrise, or sunset. The water is so smooth, turning into a mirror. Usually there would be mist rising off of it.

Oceans are fun. I love swimming and body surfing in the waves. Dad and I saw dolphins at Tybee Island, the last time I was at the ocean.

This painting is about the different states of water, and the different ways that it moves.

I think this is one of my favorite paintings you have ever done. I love the calming colors and the movement. I also love water and have many happy memories in and around water. Nice!

Love the colors – blue to blue-green and the contrasting darks and lights.

I love the motion of the water! Great colors, too.
