There is a lot of sorrowful news in the world right now. And closer to home, I have attended several funerals in rapid succession. So, it has been calming and peaceful to work on this painting. A smooth lake is a gentle wonder. This evening was particularly beautiful because the sky was an unusual pink color. The combination of green and pink charmed me and made me think of the heart chakra, which absorbs green and transmits rose. I hope that this scene provides a calming, centering, healing respite for you.
