sunrise under water | a minimalism remix

sunrise under water 150

I worked on this for over two hours last night after midnight. The piece kept pulling me back into my previous series “Variations”. I moved through various visual drafts trying to remember that the idea is to achieve a sense of visual minimalism. For me at times it is hard to say ‘enough’, its finished. I am slowly learning that a work of art can, in its minimalism, stand on its own.

Through Art …
I Feel like subtracting.

    • Thank you for the inspiring comment. I appreciate it. The “painting” is a digital image. I stopped by your link, and very much enjoyed your painting and artist statement.

  2. I do like this. It reminds me of a beach. But it makes me think, why is it so bright? It makes me imagine I am at a beach but something has gone strange either with what is happening in front of me or with my vision. It feels like I am in a film.

    • Denise, what a thought-provoking examination of the piece. And I concur wholeheartedly. It exudes otherworldly presence. Not unlike the dawn of light and the infinity of blue water. Thanks for stopping by.

      • And it’s so deceptively simple as well.
