Reflections on Lake Windwing

In Ridgefield Connecticut, Lake Windwing is a picturesque little park with ball fields and easy trails for walking dogs. November reflections in the lake are sober, muted, the color of bare trees and dried grasses. It's only on days when the sky is clear that the colors perk up the surface of the water with liquid jewel-tones of blue. - Nancy Boudreau

This painting is about 5" x 7" acrylic on gessoed mat board, protected in a cream-colored mat. As with all these little studies, the text above is handwritten on the back of the painting, which is also signed and dated.
