Standing at the edge...

of Silver Lake on a hike in Telluride,
a very steep hike from the end of the box canyon.

I had a moment of clarity as I looked deep into the water.
The light moved yet the water was very still.
I could see clearly all the way to the bottom of the lake.
... and it was peace, stillness and blue.

I painted this picture later in Hawaii based on photos I took that day.
Colors are inspired by the unforgettable memory of standing at the edge of blue.

Every morning, I wake up to this painting staring at me and I stare back.
We have an understanding and a pact.
