Small and beautiful

The pond I love

I've been watching the work of a number of artists on Instagram,
who create beautiful small pieces every day.  They are mega
inspiring, creative, exciting.  So I thought.  Hey!  Why not
plan bigger pieces that way -- especially when life gets thick
with other obligations, and the time for painting is condensed.

Perfect solution, and one the many painters who share their
work so kindly with the wide internet art community are
using.  Here's today's effort.  A painting of the lovely pond in
a park we visit as often as possible that's out on the western
edge of Toronto.  That park has both beaches on Lake Ontario,
and this quiet pond.  So superb.

I hope you are getting time at your favourite nature escapes.
They seem to make such a difference to our view of life.

Have a loving your special places day.
