Artist’s Musing: Drawn to the Water

Artist’s Musing: Drawn to the Water

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to the water. Swimming in it, traveling on it and spending countless hours gazing at its tranquility. At times, water is everywhere around us, intriguingly reflecting the world in angles unfamiliar to us. This magnetism to water is part of who I am and always will be.

From oceans to lakes, rivers, and streams, ponds, and puddles, each body of water has its own unique characteristics, but also many in common. They’re all affected by their surroundings. Each creates its own layers of reflection and textures beneath the surface. And when captured in the right light, the results can be magical.
