Still Pool, 2009
oil on canvas board, 18" x 14"
I go back to the Orange Trail at the Botanical Gardens here in Athens over and over again. It follows a creek as it winds down to the river. Along the way and a number of favorite spots to gather my pictures, each one changing after heavy rains or droughts, and with the morning sun on one side of the gully or the afternoon sun on the other. There are many little still pools of water that always draw me in to look at their reflections. This one just held me pretty tightly.
