The Beaver Pond in my painting was a chance discover while I was adventuring about looking for landscapes to paint. I can make several paintings from this one location as it is an amazingly interesting place to study the effects of light on water and reflections. It reminded me of how the ancient fens of Europe must have appeared. I spent over 3-hours exploring this region, making notes, sketches, and taking photos. It is truly a beautiful location with so much potential for finding scenery to paint. It is vast and varied landscape with new potential for art creation around every corner of its meandering paths.
