Vernal Pool – Tadpole Hatch

TM9656 Vernal Pool – Tadpole Hatch 3ox30 oil on panel

I’ve been hanging out watching vernal pools, a favorite spring activity of mine. So much is happening below the surface. This painting is based on a vernal pool in Concord, Massachusetts shortly after a tadpole hatch. The little swimmers are darting all over the pond agitating the water. So cool. Detail below.
