PEACE POND

12X16
oil/canvas board

This pond is on the property of a good friend, her last name is Peace.  She is a city girl who moved to the country and came to love it even though she has run into critters that she preferred not to befriend.  My favorite of her encounters is the BIG snake she found draped on and hanging from a limb that stretches out over this pond.
Thankfully,  it is too cold for snakes just now.  
So.....that's my pond story.

  1. Living in the country can be so interesting, can't it? I've had so many funny, fascinating and sad animal experiences. Though fawns are cute and endearing, I was a little disconcerted when one chased me down the road while I was out running one day late last summer.......literally skidding to a stop about 5 feet from me!
    A lovely painting of your friend's pond, Betty.

  7. Very beautiful painting. I live near a pond and walk there often. I have painted many scenes from our pond. Once I saw mountain lion prints on the trail. I love the birds at the pond. Have seen them pair up and see their offspring every year.

  9. Hi Anita....It is a natural high for me to live or be near water. I would love to move Peace Pond to my back yard. Thanks for visiting and commenting.
