Under the influence

I finally found some time to paint yesterday; what joy to pick up the brushes again!  And this one is a double joy, because it's a do-over of the last one, the one I didn't like: I just grabbed some of my favorite colors and painted right over it.

I'm always amused to see how the water that surrounds my home continues to exert its influence over my work -- it's really not a conscious decision; it's just what seems to evolve as I paint.

Which is a gentle but sure reminder that we are, each of us, very much influenced by our surroundings. Place, people, what we acquire, how we spend our time -- each element exerts its own pull on our subconscious...
