"Holding Breath" - in issue 10
by Catharine Graff

When painting subjects such as this, I tend to just enjoy the moment of what is happening, to allow myself to get lost in it. It is my meditation and when I feel most at peace.

My subject matter at this time tends to revolve around where I live, which is by a lake. Nothing is better than seeing wildlife in its element and it is always so fleeting.

The theme of "One does not love breathing" made me think of waterfowl searching for nourishment underwater and if they find it that way, they must hold their breath.
