Be The Water was inspired by the iconic Kung Fu master Bruce Lee. Though I’ve never seen a Bruce Lee movie, I was taken by his style and charisma with a video I saw on YouTube. In this video he speaks of how water is formless. When you put water in a glass it becomes the glass. I’ll let his own words tell you.
As you know I enjoy abstract and water is easily created conveyed with fluid brush strokes. Blending long sweeps of greens, yellows and white to give the impression of flowing water. The paint was acrylic and I wanted to give a modern feel and added the words “be the water”, a play on Bruce Lee’s own words.
I was very pleased with Be The Water and found it looks great in my Redbubble shop.
