Shimmer, Christie Lake

This is another 36" square painting. This is the one I began last week and then the wind picked up and I lost my reflections. But I continued to work with it in the studio and am pretty happy with the result. I am reading a book about artist Peter Doig and came to this passage yesterday. It meant a lot to me and I thought I'd share it:
"Mistakes are an essential part of everything I make. Many of the paintings are essentially mistake upon mistake upon mistake. That's how they evolve."
I find that great. And very freeing! Thank you Peter.

I'll have to remember that quote. I love these bigger pieces you're doing - this one especially.

Kim, this is beautiful. I love the reflections. The drizzles in the water are my favorite!
