Flowing Water Final

When I first created the Amoeba frame, I realized that it called for a very specific picture to reside within the circle. That is when I decided to paint a picture of flowing water, which is the source of all life and the home of all kinds of amoebas. Thus began my painting "Flowing Water".

Below I have added the framed painting and the painting sans frame. 

I added a gold foil around the rim of the frame.

This is the final painting with oil paints overlaying the original watercolor painting.

While working on the watercolor painting, I was amazed with the variety of color in each rock and even within the reflections that sat upon the surface of the water. How marvelous it is to observe and meditate on even the smallest things that we take for granted.
