Island Pond


Island pond is the name of a pond about 15 km south of Canal Flats. I like the trees in the middle and it is intersting to look at. I was hugely frustrated the day I painted it outside. The light kept changing! One minute the background was quite dark and the next minute is was a mid-tone. Plein-aire painting is very challenging but I am hoping to do more of it this summer.

anaelle,

I have been trying to paint a lot this year. I just dropped off 30 paintings for my group show. I'm taking a little breather and then getting started for next year's show. I also like pottery but I only have time to concentrate on one thing and painting is it for now. Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it.

I am amazed at the variety of work you do, Paula! I sure like the feel and colors of this--I admire anybody who can work with greens like this!
