Goldfish Pond


GoldfishHere is a departure.

Not a straight up landscape, but late Summer is in the palette. You can make out a single large Sweetgum leaf, upper half-center. This leaf is in the ghost of a painting abandoned last fall. I’m sure it was an east coast variation on the agave paintings done in New Mexico. Those agaves” had their origins in Sweetgum leaf inspired paintings I made in North Carolina, living another good life ago.

Painterly, with everything sitting on the picture plane. Not the illusion of spacial depth of other recent work.

Not that I had this image in mind . . .  I imagine in this painting a goldfish pond in late summer, leafs and detritus below the surface, surroundings reflected on the surface. What do you see?
