December 4, Juanita Bellavance, Water’s Edge, From the 25 Days of Minis Portfolio, 2022, Acrylic on panel, 8 x 8 inches, Framed-9.5 x 9.5 inches
Walking along the edge of theriver in Spring was so refreshing after having walked along the same edge throughout Winter that year. The trees were green and in certain places the riverbank formed a beach-like level with the water. I love seeing sand through water that is thinning as it overflows onto the sand. On the sand there were butterflies swarmed together unexpectedly. Not a flower in sight. They didn't show up here but the memory of them sprang to mind while considering this painting.
I love the organic nature of impressionism so the rawness of earth can be experienced with all its random gnarly textures. This painting generates that sensation of "being there" for me.
