Lowe Pond, Boxford, Massachusetts
acrylic on canvas board
Today was my last morning of "freedom" before the kids are out of school for the summer. I knew I had to spend it by myself, outside painting in a quiet spot. This is a pretty little pond surrounded by woods. I wanted to capture the way the morning sun shone through the trees and just touched the pond, and the feeling of peace I felt here. Not quite sure I succeeded. I am amazed at how easy some people make plein air landscapes look - I am definitely challenged! But I have the desire, so I will keep practicing.
I hope to keep my posts regular throughout the summer, but it may take a few weeks to find and adjust to a new rhythm with the kids out of school....I hope you will stick with me ;-)
