Swimmer Oil Paintings
Here's another from the swimmer series. It's from a photo taken at Barton Springs pool in Austin. I did a number of these in a large square size (36x36"). I have always liked a centered composition even though I know it's "composition for dummies". This goes back to mandala paintings I did in college which looked like big quilts. Maybe some kind of unconscious urge to meditate?
