Water! --- We've had much of it this spring and summer!   The lakes are full, the plant life is thriving, and perhaps, if you listen for a moment, you may hear the sound of bullfrogs, fish jumping, and crickets singing.    I have been working on painting water in its many personalities this summer.  The reflections of the surrounding environment make it an ever-changing and very interesting subject matter.  The water in this setting was mostly smooth and quiet, with just a hint of ripples which can be seen in the reflected surface.  

This painting is ready to frame and is now looking for its permanent home!
