Pond In Winter
My client has a beautiful farm tucked away in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania. I have had the chance to see and experience the peace and calming essence of the land on a few occasions, and I always come away with a sense of renewal and appreciation for nature.
When this commission was first proposed to me, she sent me several wonderful pictures of the central area of their farm, which is a pond. All of the photos showed a wonderful artistic eye, and any one would have made a great painting. I chose two that I felt would be a great challenge for me as well as make a good painting capturing the mood and essence of the scene. We agreed on the one shown.
