Water Painting

This is the current painting on my painting table - the work is for a show I'm organizing for the ArtistCircle group. It is called "Water = Life" and is on from Feb 14th - March 23rd. It is in celebration of the UN World Water Day on March 22nd. I'm scrambling to finish the painting and coordinate the show so I'll probably not be posting much until this one is completed.

This work is about the properties of water and how the existence of life on earth depends on these properties. I'm happy with my start but now need to figure out the huge blank area and my next layers of images for the left side - so I'm going to do some digital sketching / collage and then take that back to the real world!
