Lake Champlain, Moving Light

Lake Champlain, Moving Light
Painting by Kevin Macneil Brown, watercolor and gouache on paper, 2018.

A few weeks after painting this last summer, I began to see that this image had brought me full-circle, to the source of the very moment that caught my heart and yearning in this powerful place of water, sky, and land; of journeys, voyages, histories, migrations. 
That was the moving light to me, the leading, liminal edge of mystery and revelation.
I know now that it's time to close this web log. It will remain, but I will add no more to it.
 I am sure that I will continue to seek and find words, images, and sounds in and of this lake, and these may well show up at my other blog, Liminal Words and Music.
Thank you to all of you who have shared these journeys and voyages with me at Between Waters.

Quiet Summer Day

A very quiet midweek day spent along the waterfront at Burlington, Vermont. Wind and waves in the morning, calmed a bit by afternoon. The wind and relative coolness--as compared with a recent heatwave-- seemed to keep many away from the water. Between running, swimming, and reading a bit in the journals of Gerard Manley Hopkins, I made three watercolors at water's edge.

Lake Music

                                 Lake Champlain, October- Painting by Kevin Macneil Brown,
                              watercolor on paper, 2017

       With a sense of a cycle completed, I present this collection of three long, contemplative, immersive sound works inspired by journeys, inner and outer, along the shores and waters of Lake Champlain. This work is the culmination of many years of sound painting and exploration, and this release represents a completion and fulfillment. The three pieces are arranged into one inclusive work, reflecting a journey that begins with evocation, moves into exploration, and  at last becomes quiet contemplation. Thank you for listening. -KMB, 10/11/17.

Harbor scenes, summer into fall

The long summer makes its way to fall. The angle and quality of light shifts, softens; colors in and on water, sky, and land-forms find different suffusions. This is my favorite season to paint.
