This painting was a huge learning experience for me. I wanted to show movement and reflection in the water, but without reference to the surrounding landscape. This made it very difficult because water doesn’t have color, it only reflects the color that surrounds it. When I added reflections in the water of things from the waters edge that were out of sight in my painting it tended not to make sense and didn’t look very realistic. So I started my reflections from the ducks and worked my way out. I think I accomplished what I set out to do. It so happens that I’ve written a short poem to go with it.

Evening Glide
Days light is growing dark and dim,
soon natures night song about to begin,
rippling water slow and calm,
it reflects the passing of days dawn,
together we share the final sigh,
out for a stroll on an evening glide.
