Late Autumn by the Pond

TM9697 Late Autumn by the Pond 36×36 oil on panel

Sometimes the paintings feel more like weavings then pictures. In this case, the reflected image in a late autumn pond offers layers of interlocking leaves, branches, the last duckweed, floating leaves, and a soft blue-gray sky. The pattern on pattern on pattern is an exercise in patience, while the act of painting remains a wonderfully meditative process. Details below. Enjoy.

  1. Nature seems to like to weave things, too. So your painting parallels her way. Beautiful scene, Teri. Each of your paintings is so lovely and distinct like each of the hours spent at a pond. And the details are like getting a closer view of the moment itself.
