Its terribly wet out and has been for a few days now. I have lots of work to do but its all outside so I'm in my studio trying to be productive and maybe learning something to boot. This is an oil painting about water, one of my favourite subjects, and a leaf beginning its journey to who knows where. After I was almost finished it for the day I realized it bore some resemblance to the American painter Larry Poons, whom I admire. Funny what comes up through the sub-conscious at times.
