Oil on Acrylic on canvas. Living on an island in a first floor apartment out my window I see water, land and trees. The light and colours change everyday and at different times of the day. I like to simplify the forms and usually paint in bands of a 3 act narrative. I think of landmass and flags but aim to capture the spirit not the actuality. The brush strokes represent the motion of the willow branches, the feathers left behind on an old swan's nest and the ripples of the water.
