With this painting, I was going for a feel of peace and cooling. A mood of sitting out on the deck at night, after a hard day, just breathing in the air and listening to the gentle rain. Maybe with a glass of wine. You can almost hear the drizzle, see the flight of an insect, feel the cool breeze, smell the rain as it falls.
Serenity is a Feng Shui water element painting. The background is navy blue, with shades of blue, black, and lots of silver. 6 circles feature prominently. The colours change quite a bit depending on the light. The navy blue looks almost black at night, and the silver picks up the light and changes completely at different angles. The hand-stretched, high-quality canvas is gallery depth, 1.5 inches, and the sides are painted navy blue. As this painting looks great either horizontal or vertical, I've signed it on the side. Serenity is the perfect size for over the couch, but, hung vertically, it would also bring beauty to the landing of your stairs and make you happy every time you passed by.
