Painting by the Koi Pond

Being safe in this pandemic has meant painting around my home or seeking out places where I can keep distance from others. My friend Richard and his wife Gay have an amazing estate with gardens, lily ponds, and Koi.

Last week he offered a small group painting event on his property, in which I was delighted to participate. We began painting mid morning

After lunch, eating 6 feet apart, we fed the juvenile ducks and Koi. It was a treat to watch them splash and grab for their lunch. One duckling even came to eat out of Jean’s hand.

I now have an underpainting for a lily pond - the painting at the beginning stage. I used many colors to create a dark background on which I can grow the lily pads and lotus flowers. Maybe I'll call it ... nope, I can't name it until I see the final panting.
