Description: Couple in water, he carrying her.
Comment: I am a Herb Tauss fan and particularly of this period of his work. To me a picture like this represents so many good things in a single package... primarily, of course, the strength of the composition, but it's virtually impossible to separate composition per se from the artist's color choices. It's the blending of colors that set Tauss apart during this period, not only from his contemporaries but also from the Tauss of, say, the 1950s and the Tauss of the 1980s. It's difficult to tire of a picture like this.
