When I look at a pond, I see hundreds of paintings waiting to be painted. Often the first painting I begin is an overview showing the context of what is to come. In So Many Possibilities I’ve presented part of a millpond in Concord, Massachusetts. The fallen tree, or snag, caught my eye as it showed the completion of a tree’s life cycle – a hunting ground for fish and a sunning spot for turtles and frogs. The reflections in the water portend pondscape abstractions, while the rhythm of the trees might become a source for arboreal abstractions. In any event, a pond deserves its own portrait first. Enjoy!
So many possibilities… and all of them beautiful!
Thank you Gregorio. Lots of possibilities, but for sure a lot of work. Fun work though! I can’t wait to get to the studio tomorrow.
