A beautiful Shame

Beautiful glassy calm mercurial light filled water. In the distance I see a dazzling luminous green object floating in the water..I paddle closer and pick it up.. The contradictory image of the moment stays with me. At home, as I am working on , yes, yet another color study, the bottle finds it's way into the piece. I am reminded of the plastic bag blowing in the wind, from the film, "American Beauty" I guess this is my version. (8"x10")

Color... thinks by itself, independently of the object it clothes.

Your painting makes the water look so soft, I just want to ease myself into it, without making any splash, and float away, just like the bottle......thank you for a moment of peaceful reverie!
