The Pond


Have you missed me?  I have missed posting and just want to say thank-you for visiting my blog.  Your supportive comments mean so much to me.  I have been in  Bishop, California with a group of painters.  Bishop was a great place for painting.  We had the opportunity to paint the majestic Sierra mountains and the flat lands of the valley.  The painting above was painted at a small pond at a local park 4 miles north of town.  There were kids swimming in the pond and fisherman in boats the day we were there.  I loved the solitude of this old oak and the reflection on the water.  It was good to meet up with new and old friends.  We had a great group and a grand time and it made for "A Painting Day".

Je vous envie pour ce moment de rencontre avec de nouveaux et anciens amis peintres... Une belle façon de partager et de bousculer ses habitudes... j'aime cette peinture remplie de sérénité que vous nous montrez aujourd'hui. Ce charmant pont apporte toute la majesté de ce lieu. Il y a comme un mouvement dans votre touche qui fait que cette toile est aussi très fraîche.
gros bisous.

I love this one with its warmth at the base of the tree and reflections. I love your horses but also enjoy seeing your landscapes.
