Paintings > Joel Barr: WORDS and STORIES

abstract landscape oil painting by Atlanta artist Joel Barr
Floating
Oil on Canvas
36" x 36"

I've seen ponds my whole life and each one carries a mystery. Things will float above the water and, at the same time, deep below the surface. I wanted to paint this in such a way that the still darkness of a pond would look upward from the bottom and wonder at the mystery along with the viewer.
