‘mountain solid, water reflecting, space free’

This phrase has stayed with me from  a talk by
Thich Nhat Hanh on mindfulness. When I spent time
at Lake George last summer, I sketched the water at several
times of the day. I wanted to capture visually the experience
I’ve had when my busy mind calms down and I feel connected
and at peace. The final 24×24 painting is a combination
of the two paintings below, plus my memories of the day.
