Lake Reflections 10"x20" $275.00 framed SOLD

I have been thinking about focal points lately and how the artist can emphasize certain areas of the painting and not emphasize others so that the viewer is led to the focal point that the artist wants--visual sabotage so to speak! Anyway i tried to emphasize the relections in this painting as opposed to the reality of the trees. I used my strongest colors and contrasts and highlights in the reflections. I think it at least makes an interesting tension because your mind is saying that the trees are what is real and substantial but the reflections are more fun to look at!
