It took a long time to complete this painting, which is based on a particular spot at the pond. I’ve painted the location in summer and fall a few times, but Jazz Spring finally expresses the essence of the experience and locale for me. The multitudinous elements of reflection, ripple, and surface vegetation interact to create an almost cacophonious rhythm and “sound”. It’s the energy of spring. I also included a new friend who hung out with me all morning recently when I was on a photo shoot. Details below. Enjoy.
