Lake Ontario # 35, oil on canvas, 22" x 32".
Let go of the past, let go of the future, let go of the present,
and cross over to the farther shore of existence.
With mind wholly liberated,
you shall come no more to birth and death.

I am surprised at how much I liked this. Mostly blue, not a lot of colors, not much of a focal point - but it doesn't seem to need any other colors or focus-ers at all. I like the light on and through the water, the humidity of that sky.

Peace to you, pampe. Breathe and be...

thank you for posting such a beautiful, serene scene. I wish my hometown were as serene and peaceful. It is like a warzone in my neighborhood.

we have cried enough tears to fill oceans.
let these healing waters wash away our pain
and renew our spirits.

I'm very gratified that the painting I posted provides a measure of calm and peace to all who have viewed it.
And, as a Canadian, I would like to assure all of our American friends and compadres -- especially those in the war zone of NYC -- that we stand by you shoulder-to-shoulder at this time of tremendous pain and hardship. Your compassion, character and forebearance in the face of such unprecidented adversity is a model for the entire planet.
Our prayers and thoughts are with you all.

As there isn't much trouble in the picture (calming, indeed), the "weak" focus (that for me is in the right half of that wave - not exactly at the golden point, but tricky anyway) is strong enough to give the eye what it needs.
