The Pond

Pond with Cattails, 48 x 48″

This painting was inspired by a pristine pond at Casa Micanopy and some ratty cattails in an overgrown ditch near First Magnitude.

Most of the time, my life feels like a combination of both landscapes.

As Adam Phillips wrote in his book, Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life (I discovered the book on www.brainpickings.org), “…so much depends on what each of us makes of the too much and the too little we get.”

This week, there’s a lot I didn’t get, but I did get this painting of a pond with cattails.

    Love the colors, the movement, and the light, which I would say you captured quite beautifully, althoughI have seen neither the pond nor the cattails in person. The book also sounds wonderful.
