This is another in my small series paintings of Lake Michigan from Belmont Harbor. I am often drawn back to water as a subject matter. My blog address (waterpaintings) was initially selected because I had once planned to paint only water for one year. I found that my creative energies were drawn to a variety of projects and I strayed from that initial idea, but I continue to be interested in painting water. It is a subject matter which seems eager to be poetic--constant, yet unpredictable, beyond our control, sometimes serene, sometimes angry.
