I love to paddle my canoe. There’s nothing like gliding across a lake, listening to the ripples caused by my boat and watching the water drip from my paddles. This painting is my attempt to portray the atmosphere I feel when I’m out there. Two things that add to the painting — complimentary color: the red canoe versus the green lake. Also atmospheric perspective. The person on the left is painted larger than the one on the right, giving the illusion that she’s closer.
