Frozen Puddle Series

These pieces reflect my encounter with a frozen puddle while hiking in Monte Sano state park in the bitter cold; even the creeks and waterfalls were frozen. Sunlight danced through the tiny air bubbles in the icy puddle, producing an intriguing, almost powdered, luminescence within the ice. The image evoked my memories of “Thin Ice” by Andrew Wyeth and inspired me to create my own version. These paintings are very different from Wyeth’s, but I am content with my interpretation.
