Field trips to the pond at Hamlen Woods always yield interesting subjects for paintings. These photos, along with others I’ve taken recently, will provide inspiration for a group of new pondscapes. I never rely on one photo for a painting, but use artistic licence to combine, exaggerate, and edit many photos  – all in service to a  series of paintings that will capture the feel of the place.

  1. Field trips are so much fun, first you get to be in such a cool place and then you can look at all the awesome photos. I’m looking forward to seeing the paintings, too.
