Wow, in person, the pond is so different from the photo I had taken and used as a reference. My memory had played tricks on me.
In reality, the pond is quite close-up versus far away. It felt like it was brimming with activity. Perhaps I will paint that feeling someday.
In retrospect, I am glad I choose to focus on the sky and the rays. The sky was just as memorable yesterday as it was the first day I discovered this spot.
This oil painting, "Rays," is currently on display at West End Gallery in Corning.
