One favorite place I visit often is the forest preserves off Thatcher Avenue in River Forest. Sometimes I will take photographs of landscapes that interest me. I came upon this scene of a frozen pond with such interesting geometric patterns of blue, I had to paint it.


  1. I really like the way you painted the light and shadows. This also reminds me of the pond where I played hockey with my brothers.

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed the painting. I enjoyed creating it, and, surprisingly, am enjoying the last days of winter.

  3. Wow it your signature elements...the stunning colors, lighting, shadows and intricate details...a wonderful work...
