Water and bodies of water have unique optical properties that can be difficult to capture in a static painting.  Painters can depict the movement, changing patterns, and transparency of water by either averagin  to create an impression.  Alternately we can freeze frame the scene and capture just one fleeting state of the water.  In mixed media pieces that incorporate glass, subtly reflective mica, transparent acrylic media and metal foils, it’s possible to capture a bit more.  While these mixed media paintings don’t precisely simulate and replicate the wayter, they do provide some of the glimmering and shimmering movement of light that water creates.
