I began painting "Autumn Pond" outdoors last autumn at the edge of a pond in beautiful upstate Charlton, NY.  At one point, I didn't like the way the painting was going and started to wipe part of it in downward strokes. When it began to get too chilly and I began to get too tired, I packed up my gear and brought it home where it hung out with the other paintings in my studio for a while.

Below is a photo of a poor little dragonfly that landed on my paint and got hopelessly stuck. Thank goodness my painting buddy Debbie was with me. I won't go into the sad and gorey details but Debbie lifted it off the paint...just glad I didn't have to do it...I'll leave the rest to your imagination...

When I decided it was time to finish the painting I made a feeble attempt to initially 'fix' it  and stay with the image of the more realistic landscape as I remembered it but.....that didn't work either so I began to paint spontaneously/intuitively and stopped when I liked the result! In this photo above, the warm red area seems to be a bit redder and darker than the actual painting. Nothing I can do about it though...sometimes cameras do their own thing....
