Pool series-Greta, acrylic on canvas, 18" x 24", 2009
I've been thinking a lot about swimming lately. Especially since it's been a while since I've hit the pool. That's the funny thing about this sport. It goes in waves, just like the ocean. There always come a time when I become fully committed to the pool and do laps an hour at a time and as gradually as I've built up my endurance, it slowly declines and disappears from my life for another swim-less period.
The above painting is part of a series that I did about the pool. I love the tiles at the bottom of the painting.
