Speckled light dances on the water's surface, creating a pattern of liquid pink lava on the lake. Each paint stroke is thickly applied with only a brush, layering into a medley of texture across the canvas.

"Dappled Light" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a custom-made, gold floating frame.
