I did this painting from a photo I took at Long Hill’s Sedgewick gardens, where I did “Meditation – First Lotus. I worked hard to try to get a spot where I would not see the chair, but I would see its reflection in the water. This was the perfect image for that. It was my first large piece in the series and I learned a lot about greens! Many people do not see the chair at first glance, though children seem to pick it up quicker than adults because of the reflected image. Like in our memories and our reflections on our lives, the images are there, but altered by our perceptions, experiences, and by time. I find my memories of Mom are changed already. Qualities of my mom that were in the background are coming to the foreground as I appreciate them more. I start to see how they have altered and enriched my life and how I have been given the gift of looking, sometimes, in the same direction. The paintings tell me all I need to know.
