Beaver Trail to Bennetts Pond

Another painting of Bennett's Pond in Ridgefield Connecticut, as viewed from one of the many beaver trails. Beavers have built several lodges around the pond and created trails from the water into the forest where they scout for trees to chew down. Saplings are their favorite for lodge construction, and the travel back and forth, dragging the trees, creates very pronounced trails. Their activity opens up the forest to more light and in this particular spot they've created their own mossy lawn. Boulders along the waters edge are used for elevated views of their domain. This has got to be the perfect place for beavers. - Nancy Boudreau

The painting is approximately 5" x 7" acrylic painting on gessoed matboard, in an 8" x 10" cream colored mat, unframed, shipped to you directly by the artist. The title and prose that appear above are handwritten on the back of the painting. The painting is also signed and dated on the back.
