The Dark Pond
I painted "The Dark Pond" after an unexpected snow fall in October, 2020. I've been interested in the pools of water as I take walks close to where I live. These small bodies of water seem to come to life in the winter after the foliage is gone and they are more exposed. The snow fall makes them even more compelling because of the contrast of the white against the dark water.

- Through my paintings, I have become attentive to the splendid drama of my everyday world. How the wind can create a ripple in a pond, a flock of birds descending on a field, or how sunlight can illuminate the side of a building are small miracles that happen all around us. Instead of seeking out subject matter to paint, I simply pay attention to the nuances in my surroundings. My goal is to turn what may be considered mundane or ordinary into the sublime.
