I painted this from the photograph I took while cruising out to the intercoastal in our boat.  I have been trying to capture the time of day for these great reflections and I did it that day.

The Pond

8x10 oil on gessoed masonite
My daughter commissioned me to do this painting.  Her child's principal, Mr. Monroe, is retiring this year.  Mr. Monroe conducted many learning activities around the pond on their school grounds.  This is him giving my grandson and his friend a boat ride.  Having been an elementary teacher, I know how this expression of gratitude and admiration will be appreciated by him. He will be missed!
