The late September pond, with its morning film of thin ice melting, is the subject of this new painting. I love the way the ice (or fog) renders everything more mysterious. It’s a brief effect; in minutes the sun will melt what  little cold remains and the day will be glorious. I like to remember those warm, gentle mornings, especially in January. Enjoy!
