Frog Pond: Early Fall
#17102 oil on canvas 16X20 (2017)
A Plein Air painting of a fall day at the frog pond in our town of Sharon, MA.
I scouted the location earlier in the summer and decided to return to paint it during the fall. I checked back a number of times until I felt that the trees had reached their full autumn color. The sun cooperated and gave me some beautiful reflected light, which I floated on the pond's surface. I've returned to this same pond a number of times to capture the scene in other seasons.
