This picture shows a small group of empty canoes of different colors all floating peacefully in the water of a river. I wanted to paint this picture as a way of representing the stillness before making a decision, like which path to take in life. As you can see, the colors to the far left and right sides of the painting fade into lighter colors while the center has more plant life. This shows that there is a fork in the river, so there are two paths the group of canoes could take. For the background, I stuck to a neutral color palette, using colors such as tan, beige, baby blue, and khaki green. I used brighter shades of green, yellow, and red in order to make the canoes pop out from the rest of the picture.
