" Ripples " is an oil on canvas commissioned by a local farmer friend. He wanted a study of an aspect of his farm and left the choice to me. The feature I found inspiring was this tranquil spot created by a dam on a small stream.
I wanted a focal point and so, using a borrowed duck decoy and with the help of my daughter Vanessa gently pulling it across the pond on a length of fishing line, at just the right speed, we got the illusion of a duck swimming through the still water creating the ripples and completing the composition.
