Afternoon Reflections, 8 x 6, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2015
Painting reflections can be like working an upside-down puzzle. As I studied this watery replica of boat mast and glowing sky, it began to look like a separate reality from its counterpart above. The pieces were much the same, but deeper and a little dreamlike. As a painter, it's fun to observe and try to capture the important similarities and differences!
On a separate note, I received this "Happy Art Award" from my dear blogging friend, Barbara Muir. Barbara is an artist who adds beauty and MUCH happiness into the world every day, and encourages others to follow and nurture their creative dreams. She has been hugely supportive of me and I am greatly honored to call her "friend"!! Thank you, Barbara!
