When Monet painted his cathedral series, he was watching the effect of changing light on his subject. Lately, I’ve been watching the changes at a very specific place at my pond over the course of a few months. Initially, I liked the hefty tree trunk reflections interwoven with saplings. Now, I love the complexity of light and shadow, patterns of surface growth that are always changing, and tantalizing clues to what lies at the bottom of this shallow part of the pond. April Comes, April Goes is from this same spot, as is Finally May. Now, with Inside June, we see a range of sappy greens coming into the picture. What will July bring? Find out soon. Details below. Enjoy.
