Standing at the salty edge of the ocean… looking out… I always see so much color.
Yet when I look down at my feet the liquid is as clear as gin.
Sometimes I wonder if two of us standing at the same placeand the same time truly even see the same colors the water holds.
Art in the moment…each movement and ripple depicts another color. None the same.I imagine
Water can present a special challenge for artists. Having no consistent shape or color.
It doesn’t reflect light or cast shadows the way solid objects do.
I so admire when artists capture the soul of the ocean.
