Painting Progress - Standing Water

Catching the ephemeral in nature means catching the moment you spot something beautiful. Standing water can be just that moment. It's not a pond, or a lake, or a stream or river. It's just a pool of standing water. The water in this image was just snow melt at the end of winter one day on the way to work. The sun hit it just right, the reflections were beautiful. And like my Reflections series I could see what was under the water, reflected on the surface of the water from above and out of view, and what was springing out of the water or resting on it. There wasn't a breath of air so it was standing water.  Here's the progress of the painting and the finished painting now on view at Silver Circle Gallery in Putnam, CT:
