Puddle 3


Even during this hot summer, there are puddles at the bottom of slopes. This is all so transient. I appreciate the contrast of the muddy rim, the muddy water and the clarity of the reflection of the leaves. Everything is changing.  If I walk round the puddle, from another angle I see nothing.  In the photograph, when it is enlarged, the puddle water has all kinds of mauve colours in it. The camera picks up more than my eyes. Or has a different interpretation.

      • Lovely to hear from you, Doron. I have been away for nearly a week in the Liddel Valley, so haven’t replied until now. So glad you are painting when you have the time. Look forward to seeing some of your generous-hearted, beautifully coloured paintings when you feel able to put them up on your blog. Take care yourself. Cx

      • Hi, Doron. I expect you are having another day of feline and canine dampness, if Coldstream is anything to go by, but hope it cheers up soon. If you were painting outside your canvas would quite likely end up here, with the wind we have had today. Enjoy your holiday, you’re right, it is a great place, whatever the weather. x
