17 x 23" original painting on paper by Christine Hales
This is a painting on paper that is part of the "Swimmer Series". They are explorations seeking to convey the experience of joy, excitement. Standing in the palace my heart, re-experiencing the joy of swimming, the free, floating feeling of weightlessness is what I hope to convey and share. Being in this state of mind, if even for a second, is an antidote to the pressures of modern living.
