|Messerschmidt's Pond III, Plein air oil on stretched canvas, 10" x 20"|
When I began this painting last Monday, the sky and trees and reflections at Messerschmidt's looked like this. The next day, however, when I returned to this location, the reflections were considerable changed, since the sky was overcast. Nevertheless, I stayed with what I remembered from the day before. What with the rain and wind we've had on and off lately, the colors have changed considerably since I painted this.
