I often visit a ranch in central Texas where I enjoy long walks or even bike rides to hidden and quiet places. There are several ponds and a small lake stocked with fish. Even with the mild winter in Texas, it is amazing to see the transformation of the landscape from one season to the next. It was the afternoon of a winter day when I walked around that lake. It was not the vast open pasture or the surrounding trees that were capturing my eyes, but the infinite reflections on the water. Even though the branches were bare and dead pieces of wood covered the muddy shores, the scenery was alive on the surface of the water and I knew then that I had to paint it.
