Backyard Pond

Winkin', Blinkin', Nod and Blackie

Winkin’, Blinkin’, Nod and Blackie

This is a quick study of our backyard container pond.  We have four goldfish and the painting is named after them.  If you’re wondering about ‘Blackie’, he started out black and then changed to orange after a couple of weeks in the pond. We didn’t know a goldfish could do that! We kept the name, of course. This was painted ‘alla prima’ from life. It’s a 12″x16″ oil on panel. The plants are a water lily and pickerel, with a stray leaf from the now exhausted tomato plant next to the pond. Fall is fast approaching and these guys will be moving into a fishbowl soon.
