Duck Pond



This is a plein air piece.  I was standing on a tiny bridge
crossing the creek that led into this pond.  Ducks
every where.  In the reeds, in the pads, quackers
all over.  I was drawn by the large tree in the back
ground acting as a dark center piece above the pond.
I've kept this painting in a drawer, I've never 
really cared for it, but it's beginning to grow on
me.  Sometimes things need time to resolve and
become clear.

Double Dave, I am so glad you pulled this out of that drawer! REally nice.

Doug, I really meant to say Double D... somehow that "Dave" just found it's way out of my fingers. Just as I hit send I saw it. OOOOOOOOOOOPs! sorry. :/

No sweat Laurel, I've been called much worse, such as the way I used to receive junk mail. My first name was on a list spelled Doulgas. Yep, that's the way it sounds. My kids still call me that and now the grandchildren are too. Glad you like this painting. I'm my own worst critic. I've got flat files filled with paintings. I should have a flat files retrospective.
Take care.

Hi Jan, thanks for stopping by.
Appreciate your comments. Nice to
see someone from Lansing. Did you
have a painting in the Mid Michigan
Art Guild show?
