I love this little pond image done in watercolor. It reminds me of so many ponds you see beside any roadway all over Mississippi.
It reminds me of a conversation I had decades ago when I was talking about how much I like fishing. I was living in Louisiana at the time and someone asked me, "Where do you fish?"
I replied, "Usually at somebody's pond."
He looked at me sideways and said, "You must be from Mississippi."
I laughed, but couldn't deny it. It was only then that I realized not everyone was lucky enough to have so many opportunities to go fishing.
I thinkink this is probably my favorite picture I have ever painted. It is acrylic on canvas board and one of the paintings I have displayed in my own home.
This well-worn path may lead to places of exciting adventures or blissful peace. Either way, I want very much to see where it goes.
I found the reference image for this painting on pmp-art.com. I downloaded it and kept looking at it for a long time before I dared attempt it.
Finally, after about two years, I decided to give it a try. I'm really pleased with how well it turned out. It was a beautiful photo and challenging painting.
