"Summer Pool"
Oil on Canvas 38" x 28"

"Painting the reflection and refraction of clear water is a very difficult thing to do. I tried for years to accomplish this with very uneven results. I finally had a breakthrough which occurred in an unexpected moment. In this moment I realized how to do it. It was a genuine epiphany. Ever since that moment, I have simply known how to do it without too much analysis or struggle."
