Water gently ripples forward, reflecting the lush vegetation ahead and the voluminous clouds above. "It's a lazy day in midsummer," says artist Rodgers Naylor. "A canoe trip down a lazy river in the middle of the country. This painting was done not only to convey the peaceful mood of such a day but also to study the difference between the real and the reflected, even on calm water. There is always the quality of the surface of the water itself, plus the quality of the reflected shapes, which tend to be slightly darker and softer-edged than the shapes being reflected."
