I have always loved painting landscapes, from old barns on rolling hills to fishing sheds in evening light. Recently I have wanted to try an entirely new subject matter. For years I have been fascinated with water and how objects reflect on it; the shapes and movement almost take on an abstract quality.
Including water in my work has always intimidated me, until I remembered my parents, being artists themselves, telling me how water like everything else has structure and form. Keeping this in mind, instead of painting water to look like water, I have focused on painting the abstract shapes and how it reflects objects.
In this new series of works I wanted to concentrate on the movement of the reflections rather than the objects themselves. This allows the viewer to decide what they see and imagine or take them to a place that allows an emotional reflection.
