Bathing in Light – Golden Bay NZ
Oil on Canvas 102 x 51 cm
Lethea and I often take a late afternoon walk while the tide is low at our local Rototai beach. On occasion we come across many swans. With the sun approaching setting, this pair of swans were the inspiration for this work as they drifted through the brilliant glow of the sun across the water, to be Bathed in Light.
Keeping in mind the darker modern decor, I built up this rich warm setting; the darker it becomes, the brighter the sunlit water glows. May the swans take you deep into a peaceful meditation.
