|Water Sprite a 24" X 24" watercolor by April M Rimpo|
24" X 24"
Water Sprite is a tribute to a friend who loves fish. I know this because she bought a painting I did of fish and explained how much she enjoys them. She clarified that she did not mean she liked eating them. When she told me this, my thoughts immediately turned to doing a painting of her swimming with fish with a smile from ear-to-ear.
Shortly before this conversation I had started a series of paintings with a goal accentual the inner story of a person. The story may be something few people or know or well known. Sometimes these inner stories are my reaction to the person, in other words, how I feel about them. So does that make it my inner story about the person? Maybe not, but my point is that these are not traditional portrait but something deeper. I hope you enjoy this painting and the others in this series.
Water Sprite was selected for the Northwest Watercolor Society's Waterworks Unchained exhibition. An online exhibit to be on display April 28 - September 12.
