Duckweed Pond

6 x 12 inches
Oil on Panel

This is a small oil painting of what used to be the verdant 1 acre pond in my back pasture.  The record drought we have had in Texas this year has not only dried up the pond, but is killing off all of the willows and other water loving trees that grow around it.  With nonstop days of 105+ temperatures, I feel like I have gone from living in Eden to living in Hell.  I am reduced to performing rain dances three times a day.  I'll let you know if it works.  It is finally over cast and noticeably less hot today.

  1. Wow, I absolutely love this painting even though it probably makes you a little sad to look at it. I love everything about it.


I am a comment junkie! Please tell me what you think!
