When I was a child growing up on a farm in Saskatchewan I loved going down to the pond. It was a small pond where the water accumulated from the drainage culverts under the railroad tracks. For me it was a place of solace. I loved watching nature and the life in the pond – catching tadpoles and frogs.
As an adult I am still intrigued by ponds and marshes. I love going out in the canoe and escaping to a quiet place with the sounds and sights of nature.
Lily pads and water shield plants have always fascinated me.
Painting ponds takes me back to that place of solitude and allows me time to meander in my thoughts. It is like a painting meditation for me.
I hope you enjoy my pondscapes.
