While deciding how to approach painting this river, it became clear why the analogy of “life flowing like a river” is so often used. Streams of thought, emotions and life itself flow like one.
Letting go of time and observing the continuous rushing of the water, showed the eddies and swirls that form around the rocks. The intense bright colour of wet stones glinting in the sunlight, contrasting with the dark green greys of the surrounding area.
This is not meant to be an accurate representation of this place, but a journey into the surreal. How the mind imagines and interprets what it sees.
No two people ever observe the same river, there are similarities and overlaps but for everyone the experience will be different.
