Seeing “Golden Pool”.

“Golden Pool” was a pivotal image in what was to become a long journey looking for and creating images based around reflections. Walking along a stream in western Maine I bent down and saw the water sing with gold. It was one of those “aha!” moments where I learned that by moving all around – up, down, and to either side – I could discover amazing reflections being bounced from bright sunlight hitting autumn leaves in the canopy above, then once again being bounced off the stream that itself was moving. Little did I know that several years later I would take this idea of bounced color and light, and bring it into new work based upon the abstraction of shapes and details.

  1. Congrats on the new blog! I’ve had a couple of workshops with Eddie and wouldn’t hesitate to do another. He has a way of teaching that inspires. Keep up the good work! By the way, this particular photo is one of my favorites! Greg……From the land of Leland!
