Pond Series

Monet is the father of all pond painting. A cautionary warning is advisable to the artist who takes it on. However I walk my dog in an Upstate nature conservancy that has a large pond. It is wild, it is native, it is awesome.

After years of observing the seasonal and weather changes, I painted the pond. Then I painted it again and again and soon I had a series.
