When I first arrived at this spot by the stream at the entrance to Meg's house, the sun was reflecting brightly off the surface of the water behind the tree. I imagined a dark study with blinding white reflections, but it's the nature of nature to change as the sun moves across the sky. So the composition emerged as a pattern of crisscrossing limbs and shadows. An upcoming endeavor, hopefully soon, is to be painting on larger canvases so the eye can be immersed more fully in the experience.
