What inspired me to paint this scene was first, the movement of the water and the many colors reflected in it. For me, the many shades of green are both soothing and healing. But I am also inspired by the dramatic upward reach of the tall grasses. They speak to me of movement and growth, as well as proclaiming an exuberance for life!
Though the original is in pastels, the fine art giclee reproduction is done on the highest quality satin finish canvas, and therefore looks very much like an oil painting, with deep and brilliant color.
