Reflections on a hot summer


Here you can see the actual boat reflections

..and on this one, you can even see the reflection of the sailor , BUT...
I am posting this piece with some trepidation. A year of so ago, we were down at our local marina on a hot , sunny, clear day with little or no breeze. I fell in love with the reflections of the moored sailboats in the water and shot MANY photos. I decided to try one of my pure reflection photos as an abstract sort of piece . I have been at it for days and am still not totally convinced , although now that it is ready to do the thread painting and maybe some couching, I like it better than I did earlier. I have posted  some of the other photos for you to see. OK, here goes! JUST reflections!
...here is the one I am working from - VERY abstract!
...and here is my take on it - so far.
I will take a chance and post this on needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com because I value your input.

  1. I think that this is a project you should continue to pursue. I like what you've done so far and it's very cool and has a great abstract/literal balance. Two thumbs up.

  6. It's beautiful!! Captures that flickering that reflections have. Did you mean for the eye to go to the vertical red line?

  10. Well, I really like it! I often post with trepidation. Sometimes when I'm working on a piece, I dislike it but after it is done and sometimes when I haven't seen it for a while, I discover that I love it.
    I really like your color choices with the greener water and the little bit of red top right. What a spectacular photo and beautiful ice!
    You've likely mentioned this before but do you use fusible web?
