Penny Pond

Pond Ponderation

Another plein air started on location and finished in studio, and #3 of my gardenscape series.  Named this Penny Pond because it was tiny and probably didn't have a name at the nursery.  Changed it around quite a bit, used artistic license to clear water weeds so the sky could be reflected.  This painting does have the early morning light effect I experienced while painting with the Englewood Plein Air Artists, but it doesn't have the nearby roar of traffic.   Penny Pond lives mainly in my imagination.
