Lately we have been driving past a reservoir that is completely frozen and have been watching people ice fish on it. It was such a calm and peaceful scene I had to paint it. So here is my rendition: The Ice Pond in Winter.
This is another larger one at 36 X 48 inches in size. I wanted to capture some of the aspects of nature without making it relative to size. At the bottom I have painted some pollen grains that I think have a wonderful abstract quality. This painting is bright, without being overwhelming. If you look carefully you’ll find a tiny homage to the first video game I played and also a pair of my tired eyes after painting the many very tiny details this painting holds.
